From April 20 to 27, the classes 4AHME and 4BHME attended a language week in Edinburgh. All students had the opportunity to experience the Scottish culture and to see famous sights like the Scottish Monument, Old and New Town, the Edinburgh Castle, and even had the chance of a private tour of the parliament.
Our days usually started at 9 am with the language school and in the afternoon our teachers had a program prepared for us. In the evening, we had dinner with our host families and could afterwards explore the city on our own. In the pubs we tried local foods like fish and chips or haggis.
Due to the surprisingly good weather, we particularly enjoyed the walking tour in Edinburgh on our first day and the trip to Glasgow on Saturday. Together we visited the medieval cathedral, the local graveyard and even walked a part of the City Centre Mural Trail – beautiful pieces of public street art.
One of the highlights was probably the bus tour along the coast stopping in St. Andrews and a Whisky distillery as final destination.
Not only did our class community benefit from this trip, our English improved as well.
In summary, we really enjoyed our language week and are grateful for the experiences we made.
