Die 4. Jahrgänge waren wieder auf Sprachreise – erstmals in Schottland inkl. Gastfamilie & Sprachschule.
The week we spent in Edinburgh was full of excitement and fun trips. After fun learning and games with amazing teachers at CES Edinburgh we had lots of different activities in the afternoon. We visited two castles, Edinburgh and Sterling Castle, as well as Loch Lomond, where we learned about the history of Scotland. Furthermore we got to experience different parts of the city, like Old Town, New Town, Calton Hill and many more attractions. One of our trips was to the National Museum where we met the cloned sheep Dolly, another one to the Queen Margaret University, where we were guided on a tour through the costume department by lovely students of the university.
Apart from experiencing regular scottish nightlife, we had a traditional scottish dancing class, where we danced cèilidh to (partially live) folk music, which was a really fun evening. As far as scottish food goes, I’ve heard that some students have tried Haggis and fried Mars bars and enjoyed it, whereas me and my friends stuck with scottish McDonald’s which is exceptionally good, especially the vegan options that they offer. We wrapped up the trip with a fun visit to the Edinburgh Dungeons which was not what I expected but still gave a little insight to the medival times in Scotland. Even though it wasn’t exactly scary, some people were teffified, so the goal of the trip was still met!
