Talia (Fifth Form, Priestley) has written the below report about the GCSE German pupils’ trip to the Goethe Institute this week.
‘On 6 December, GCSE German pupils went on a school trip to the Goethe Institute. We took the tube and after a short walk from South Kensington tube station, we found ourselves in a huge, modern and bright library full of German books!
The first activity of the day was a German Escape Room. We were split into two teams and had to investigate in German a detailed crime scene about a hacker. Even though our team lost, it was my favourite part of the trip, as we had the chance to apply our German knowledge in an extremely fun activity.
Our next activity was a presentation from a student of German from UCL. She talked about the importance of German in the workplace and then we practised some GCSE photo cards. We were working in three groups and were challenged to produce the longest and most complicated sentences!
After lunch, we watched a German movie called ‘Der Ganz Grosse Traum’ about how football first arrived in Germany. I thought it was a really nice way to end the trip. We were all encouraged as we were able to follow some of the German and understand some words and phrases.
This has been my first trip in Mill Hill School due to the pandemic. It was fantastic and I learnt a lot!’
