After many weeks of preparation the day finally arrived. On Thursday, 27thof September hundreds of students from all over Berlin made their way to the Russian House in Friedrichstraße to celebrate the 20thAnniversary of the SESB programme. Students from many different cultures met, performed, sang and danced to commemorate the establishment of a programme set up in 1992 first and foremost as a test. Now, 20 years later, the idea has flourished to a grand scale nobody could have imagined all those years ago. Many pupils in Berlin have the possibility to do their Abitur in two languages now and thousands enjoy the chance to experience bilingual education.
