GERMAN EXCHANGE PROGRAM 2015
TUESDAY, 2ND DECEMBER 2014, 6.00PM
FOUNTAIN GATE SECONDARY COLLEGE
The German Exchange Program with our sister schools in Hessen has been operating since 1998. Each exchange has been extremely successful and participants have enjoyed many benefits. Students naturally improve their German skills and broaden their understanding of German culture, giving them a strong base from which they can continue their language learning into VCE and beyond. Students also develop greater independence, maturity, and self-confidence.
Your child has the opportunity to get involved next year. The 2015 program begins in September with our group’s visit to Germany. The German exchange group will then make their visit to Australia in March 2016. The German trip involves an extensive 4-week program of sightseeing, home-stay, and language classes. Previous groups have visited such beautiful and historic cities as Vienna, Berlin, Frankfurt, Heidelberg, and Cologne, and have taken a cruise on the Rhine River. For three of the four weeks students live with their host families and attend school classes.
If you are interested in travelling or hosting a German student, you are invited to join us:-
