Trip to our Italian friends

This year, some students from our school went to Italia during one week, on March. After more than 20 hours in the coach, we were very happy to arrived in Naples. During the jouney, we lived in a beautiful hotel next to the sea. It was a wonderful experience for us and we learnt a lot of things.

Only few students went to Napoli before this trip, so it was a real discovery for all of us, about the historical monuments but also about the Italian culture. Because of the fact we lived in a hotel, we didn’t have a lot of contact with Italian except when we shopped during our free times. However, the receptionists were very helpful with us during meals, except the fact that they probably didn’t have a good opinion of French visitors. It was a innovation for our teachers as well, because it was the first time they came with students in Naples, even if they have already organised a trip in Italy before. It was in Rome 3 years ago.

Life in Italy is so different from life in France, even if we have the same money and the same big brand like MacDonald or H&M. For example for food : there is a lot of Italian specialities. Pastry, pizza, tiramisu or pesto sauce are some of them. What surprised us most about food during the trip was that Italians ate pastas before eating the « real » dish, contrary to French people who eat that like the main course. We ate so much during this travel !

Unfortunately, we can’t learn English in our school, so it would be complicated to understand and speak with native people without the little Italian lessons we had with Miss Couturier during our latin hours. Even if we couldn’t know a lot of things, it was a really interesting experience. But we spoke almost only English, it was less complicated !

A Christmas Project!

At the beginning of the year, with the two classes of the European section, we made a live video. It was fun, and there were lots of students on both sides.

Everyone introduced himself to the class of Poland, then the Polish students did the same. We sang an regional song called « le ban bourguignon ».

Before that, we wrote Christmas cards to Polish, Turkish and Lithuanian. They answered us and they talked about their culture for Christmas.

Anna Seighers German Exchange

   Anna Seighers, is the name of an exchange where German students come in France during one week; French people go to Germany as well with the same partner. The exchange has been created in order to improve the language and share culture because the participants live with their partner’s family during the week.

   In our school, four French students have been selected to get part of this exchange. We stayed in touch and asked some questions to our partners for this article. Paula is a 16 year-old-German, she thinks that this exchange was very interesting. She has already made another exchange in France (in Brazey en Plaine with her school). During this journey she preferred doing activities with her partner and her friends. However in Germany there is no school in the afternoon as there is in France and they don’t eat there. In the end she would like to do this exchange with the same people again.

Then, Mari is another Japanese and German girl who took part in this exchange. She thinks the travel was very interesting and funny. Moreover, she said that she got new friends (German and French), it made her French better and learned new things about France. She finds the best moments were the shopping on the first day and the bowling on Wednesday. Mari had already done another exchange before this one but her partner couldn’t come in Germany in return… She agrees with Paula about the differences between the French and German schools:  » in France we eat at school and the school’s days end at 5 p.m!!!  » But she thinks that the teachers are different: French teachers are stricter than in Germany. Finally, Meluzina, a French students talked about her trip to Germany. She did a lot of sport like swimming, gymnastic and athletism. With her partner, they went to cinema and then played bowling. The walked around the Rhein and it castles as well. Her partner lives at 90 km from Trier; Meluzina ate Curry Wurst ( Sausage with curry and tomatoes and spaghetti ice cream). She thinks this exchange is worth to discover a new school and a new system, furthemore her family was great and very funny!

   As far as we are concerned in Germany we visited a lot of monument as Porta Nigra in Trier, different villages around this city, castles and vineyards. We also ate many specialities. With our partne

rs, we went to their school (only in the morning…) and after this, we did activities with her like sport, tourism or cook.

   This exchange has improved our German level, has showed how schools in another country are. Moreover, we get new friends today!

Menus… From Europe to our plate!

During the Month of Europe organized in our high school, we’ve discovered some specialties of the countries that the students have visited. For instance, on the 17th Tuesday of May, we ate in starter, a German salad, then, in main course, beef moussaka from Greece and an Italian dessert, a tiramisu.

Different meals in Europe

In Spain, they get 5 lunch times! Breakfast (el desayuno) is served at 8.00 a.m. When it’s almost 11.00 a.m.,  Spanish have a break time (el almuerzo). Lunch (la comida) is between 2.00 and 4.00 p.m. Some of the most gluttony take a snack (la merienda) at 6.00 p.m. and the dinner (la cena) is eaten after 9.00 p.m.

In the UK, the first meal is at 6.30 a.m. then lunch at midday. They’ve got tea time at 5.00 p.m. and they have dinner at 6.00 p.m.

In Germany, they have 4 meals.

UK Breakfest Lunch Tea Time Final Lunch
Germany Frühstück Zwischenmahlzeit Mittagessen Abendbro
Spain Desayuno Almuerzo Comida Merienda Cena


Opening on Europe also is  a discovery of new cultures throughout customs and traditions and that’s what we’ve done by eating traditional dishes.
