When we saw England from the airplane we all had different feelings. We already knew our exchange students, because they had been in Berlin first, but we were very excited to meet our host families.

I visited England for the first time and it was the first exchange I had. My host family was really friendly and cute and I already liked them on the first evening. Both parents were teachers and had a great sense of humour. I accompanied my exchange student Ella to her piano lesson and her cricket match.

At the weekend they showed me some places around Corsham.
Corsham is a small village with old houses and a lot of nature. The majority of the people who live there, have a house with a garden. There are not many places where young people can go, like a cinema or a bowling centre, but they have a lot of sport facilities for example swimming, cricket, football, badminton… Most of the youngsters do sports.

My host family and some others organized a lot of “game evenings” where Ella, myself, some of my friends and their exchange students went together. We played a lot of games and I enjoyed the meetings because this way it was fun to get to know each other.
The food was yummy because my host mum was good at cooking. Just chips with vinegar were not my taste.

Lacock Abbey and Oxford

Lacock Abbey: On Monday we went to Lacock Abbey in the village of Lacock, Wiltshire, England after school. There we visited with our German group the Abbey, which was founded in the early 13th century by Ela, the Countess of Salisbury, as a nunnery of the Augustinian order. We passed through the famous cloisters of Lacock Abbey, where also some scenes of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince had been filmed. But the Abbey also was used to make other movies, like “The Other Boleyn Girl“ or “Robin Hood”. So the trip was very interesting, because on the one hand you could experience the atmosphere of the medieval rooms and cloister court and on the other hand you felt as if you were in the Harry Potter world!

Oxford: On Friday we went to Oxford by train. The city is made prominent by its medieval university. The University of Oxford is the second oldest and one of the most famous universities in the world. The Guardian University Guide 2009 and The Independent’s Good University Guide 2009 selected it for the best University of the UK. It has existed since the 12th century and is divided into 38 colleges and six permanent private halls. With our German group we visited Trinity College, which was founded in 1555 by Sir Thomas Pope. We followed a guided walking tour in English. After the visit we had some time to walk through the city and to go shopping, of course! Oxford is a very nice and historical city, which you have to see one day!

Bristol: On Wednesday we went to Bristol by train. Bristol was an important port city in the 12th Century. In the 18th Century Bristol was the centre of the slave trade. Today Bristol is one of the most beautiful cities in England, despite the destruction during the Second World War. In Bristol we wanted to see Brunel's SS Great Britain – a ship-museum. But they opened later and so we walked along the river. Then the ship and the museum were opened and we entered the world-wide first iron ship with propeller drive. In the ship all was decorated like in former times, also with wax people, who looked very alive. In the museum we learned about the history of SS Great Britain. It was very interesting. They showed films and we could put on historical hats. At the end of the excursion we took the ferry across the river Avon to the centre of the city and enjoyed another shopping-tour.

A Visit to Corshamschool

The school in Corsham is very big with many low buildings, for example for the science or arts department. Every teacher has a room for his own and does not have to walk to all the different classrooms. After every lesson the pupils in Corsham have to walk to the room, where the next teacher teaches. In the break, the pupils go outside the buildings to the two big football fields and sit on the grass and talk.

The school in Corsham is very rich, because one day there was an assembly and the teachers asked the pupils, what they wanted to have for the money that the school had. That was a big surprise for us! Therefore I was not amazed that they did not have blackboards. They have, in their school, new computer boards with a beamer and other modern electronic equipment.

During the lesson only the teachers talk! No one participates in the lesson. My exchange student was in class eleven and I think our lessons are harder (but I am in class nine!) .

I think, some things are better in the Corsham school and some in the normal German school.

Bath and Bristol

Bath: On Tuesday we went to Bath. Bath is famous for the Roman Baths, where we had a guided walking tour in English about the city of Bath. After this we had time to explore the city and of course we had a little shopping-tour, too. Then we visited the antique Roman Bath, where we learned more about the history of the Roman Bath. All in all Bath was very interesting and was definitely worth a visit!
