From September 22nd to September 29th 34 students of NMS Neulengbach spent an exciting week in Worthing, England. They all stayed with host families thus gaining an insight into the typical
British way of life.
In the mornings our students attended English classes at St George’s School and in the afternoons they explored the surroundings with their teachers Mrs Kaindl, Mrs Wolf and Mrs Berthold. They discovered Worthing, a lively town on the Sussex coast, where they went shopping and had a lot of fun on the beach.
One day they went to see Arundel Castle with its fantastic gardens and another day they explored the lanes of Brighton and its fantastic pier. A highlight were the trips to London on Saturday and Sunday. Our sightseeing tours included a ride on top of one of the red double-decker buses, Madame Tussaud’s, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, a boat tour on the River Thames, Hyde Park (Speaker’s Corner) and Buckingham Palace.
After this week the students returned home filled to the brim with new impressions, images and ideas. They had successfully practised their English in a foreign country. May this experience be a motivation for them to go on studying foreign languages, to travel round and to get to know interesting people and other cultures.
