Creil, 9th March 2018. After their three-week work experience in the French twin town, Emily Beckmann, Richard Lammert and Robin Fischer enthusiastically reported on their experiences. Emily had chosen a nursery school for her work placement, where she was accepted very warmly and could learn a lot about children and how to handle them. At the end of her report on the work placement she concludes that she could not only improve her French along the way, but moreover got to know great people and will never forget this nice time.
Richard and Robin did their work placement in a French retirement home and were also absolutely happy with their decision to do the work placement abroad. As animators they could help with the organisation and implementation of the light entertainment programme for the still very active, nice and interested seniors and had plenty opportunity to speak. They played parlour games with the seniors, for example, did sports and made music with them etc. Richard finally formulates, “Summing up, I can definitely say that the work placement was a great advantage for me. I got to know a lot of nice people, learnt very much about France and improved my knowledge of French enormously. Now I can talk much better in French and also my vocabulary has been enlarged enormously.
Support for work placements of pupils abroad can be applied for by parents or schools in Germany or other european countries. Applications can be sent at any time per application form or informally, e. g. per e-mail, to
At present, exchange Programmes for pupils are only supported at the cooperating schools. Here support is applied for by the school.
