Trip to Aachen (Germany)

 

On November 25th 2013, all 10th, 11th and 12th graders whose second foreign language is German went to Aachen, Germany.

 

First of all, we visited the city. It was a bilingual guided tour focused on the history of Aachen and especially that of Charlemagne.

 

Then, the students were free to visit the city centre and the Christmas Market. They had to ask German natives some questions about the town, its history and its gastronomy. It was a nice opportunity for them to speak German!

 

We finally went back to Belgium, our minds full of nice memories and new experiences!

London – March 19th – A Journey To The Centre of Britain

 


On March 19th, all 10th graders, accompanied by their English teachers, set off for London in the early morning. We took the Eurostar in Brussels South. The journey to London was very short : it took us two hours to reach London St. Pancras Station.

 

The first `visit´ was that of the famous Tube, whose construction dates back to the 1860s. Then, we went to Harrods, the shop where you can buy almost everything.

 

We walked to Buckingham Palace where we saw the changing of the guards. After having a look at the squirrels in St. James´ Park, we took some pictures of Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.

 

It was time to eat something typically British!

 

In the afternoon, we admired the colourful screens of Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square before going to Covent Garden.


At the end of the day, everybody was exhausted but happy to have experienced this wonderful journey to the centre of Britain!
