Cassel, 5th July 2018. Only a few kilometres away from the northern French seashore Hannah spent her work placement at a collège in northern French Cassel. In her report she describes how she arranged her German lessons in different classes and in doing so noticed how much the pupils enjoyed understanding „what the task was or what I told about Germany and myself“. She also managed to do away with some clichés so that the pupils quickly noticed that in Germany you rarely run around in dirndl and leather trousers and do not always eat potatoes with every meal. Hannah is completely happy with the course of her work placement and „would go abroad again any time, also for a longer time, and therefore can reccommend to everyone to have a try and get to know another country.“
Hazebrouck, 4the July 2018. In his work placement at a French collège Erwin taught in three different classes of different ages and levels and was happy about how well the pupils co-operated and were interested in the German culture and language. During the times when he did not teach himself he could watch the lessons in other classes and subjects, which was extremely interesting because of the differences to the German school system. As the French youngsters were very open and also included him in their conversations in the breaks, Erwin felt really good in Hazebrouck and could make the most of his experiences.
