German Exchange 2009/ 10: Hagen, Germany

In October 2009 we spent an exciting week at Hagen, Germany.

German Exchange: Hagen, Germany

Last October I went along with several other year 9 and 10 students on a German exchange to Hagen.

The trip was extremely fun and also very good for improving our language skills - I would recommend it to anyone.

During the week we spent our days observing and taking part in lessons and also going on a variety of trips out to places such as Cologne, Oberhausen and also one day to the "Kletterwald" - the German version of "go ape".

The evenings and weekends we spent with our host family, who were all very welcoming - my host family took me out for Italian food and then a dance performance, which I really enjoyed!

During the course of the week I made lots of new friends and I am looking forward to hosting in June, when I will be able to introduce my exchange partner to my friends and my family.

Have a look at the photos!
