My days in Germany
It was a raining day when I saw Theresa at first. When I saw her I didn’t know what we would do or what we would speak about in that moment I would never tnink that we could be friends but now we are good friends and I trust her, I know that she wouldn’t tell anybody my secrets.
I came here to learn more about German traditions and culture. But I am getting more than I want to know. I spend a lot of time with Theresa and her family I know what they do on their free time, how they communicate with each other and their relationships, what they eat, how they react in different situation, what usually do with their friends and the most important for me is their life in school. Before I visit their school I thoght that they don’t have any problems with their classmate but now I understand that we are the same, we´ve got the same feelings, the same style and they just like us want to be stylish and ask each other in the family what to wear or what will be the best for them. Germans are very nice and kind people and I´m very happy that I´m here and communicate with them.
First day at school
Every day we use woke up early and went to school I don’t like waking up so early but I did it by myself. In order to get to the school we usually took a bus and it was so funny because it deliver us to the school like in the USA. Their school has modern facilities and well-equipped class rooms. Also, curriculum in this school is very unusual and advanced.
Our tripping days
Germany is a very beautiful country. Here there are a lot of trees, old houses, farms and fresh air. I like to look around here because sometimes it´s very unusual for me.
Our first “station” was Hachenburg. Hachenburg –is an old city with ancient architecture and narrow streets. We visited a lot of gorgeous places: churches, old houses and local streets.
The next what I saw were Marksburg and Koblenz. I´ve got a lot of great experience because I saw an ancient castle but it was very high and we had to go up and up, everybody got tired very quickly but not me because I was looking forward to see it. After that we had a small “voyage” on the river which is called Rain. In the shore of the river was a lot of trees and dwelling–houses.
The third “station” was Köln. At first we went to the zoo and saw a lot of animals such as a tiger, hippo etc. after that we were driven to the big and extremely ancient church. I and my friend went upstairs. It was very hard because it was nearly 500 jaggiest!! We were proud of ourselves that we did it.
This week we visited the next places motormusem and a mine. In the motormusem there were a lot of old things and many motorcycles. And I bought there an old card.
Before we went downstairs in the pit we had to dress in special clothes to protect oourselves from everything. I want to add that there was so cold that I could not feel my arms.
Also we visited Limburg. Limburg is a very beautiful city. There was a lot strange sculptures and houses.
This weekend they organized a small family party with traditional German meal. I liked it so much it was very tasty. Her family is very nice they laugh and talk a lot. After that we were walking in the garden and watching the stars.
On Sunday we rode motorbikes It was so funny, they showed me a lot of beautiful places. When we came home her mother made a dinner we sat together and talked about our day.
After this 2 weeks of being here I understand Germans, their traditions. They change me in a good way, I feel accomplished. All days I spend with them we brought newspapers together, went on a football match, walking with her friend and played games with her sisters, listened to old, good music with her brother, danced and boxed, made cookies we had a lot of fun. This exchange gave me something what I didn´t have in me before. I will miss my host family and Germany so much.
