Last Friday a group of Block 5 and Sixth Form German students spent the day in London, alongside pupils from Churcher’s College. Starting at the exhibition entitled ‘Germany: Memories of a Nation’ in the British Museum, we made our way to the Goethe Institut, known as Germany’s worldwide cultural convention. In German, we were given a tour of their facilities. Although challenging, this gave us an opportunity to increase our vocabulary and listening skills. Afterwards, we hopped on the tube to have dinner at a restaurant, specialising in German food. We enjoyed a delicious meal at ‘Herman ze German’, practising our speaking by ordering our meals in German. After a long, yet insightful and enjoyable day we made our way back to school.
