KS3 German Trip – Day 2

June 14, 2016

On the second day of our trip we were warmly welcomed by the staff of the Sprachschule Aktiv, where our students will have the chance each morning to enjoy an interactive German lesson. In their first lesson, the children had the opportunity to use German a lot when describing themselves. They learnt about different types of food in Germany and then role-played ordering in a restaurant. The lesson then continued in an ice cream cafe where the students, accompanied by their new teacher, practiced what they had just learnt in a real life situation, ordering food and ice cream. The most important thing, however, was that after the lesson they continued to speak German for the rest of the day.

In the afternoon we went on a guided tour with explanations and details provided in German adapted to the children’s interest. We climbed the circa 300 stairs of Peter’s Church, from where we could see the whole Munich landscape and even the Alps. At the end of the tour we offered a traditional Romanian present to our guide to remember the time spent with us, then went to the toy museum (Spielzeugmuseum) where we saw the first Barbie dolls. Next we visited the impressive stadium Allianz Arena, where we also had another guided tour which the children enjoyed a lot. Our final activity for the day we will be visiting the concentration camp Dachau.
