Year 9 Visit to Cologne
A group of Year 9 students visited Köln (Cologne) in Germany in December. The trip involved a visit to the festive Christmas market and a tour of the city. It is always a good opportunity for the pupils to practise their German!
Useful phrases include : “Guten Tag!” (hello) and “ich möchte Bonbons / Pommes bitte!” (I would like sweets / chips please!”)
The group travelled through the night to get there, staying in a youth hostel near the centre of the city. As in previous years the trip was lots of fun (viel Spaβ!) and it provided a chance to speak and understand German in a Christmassy setting!
