Erasmus-plus-Reise nach Budapest

Acht Schülerinnen des 10. und 11. Jahrgangs haben eine aufregende und erlebnisreiche Woche im ungarischen Budapest verbracht. Untergebracht in Gastfamilien der Partnerschule Kossuth-Gymnasium, erkundeten sie vier Tage lang die Sehenswürdigkeiten der ungarischen Hauptstadt. An zwei Tagen nahmen sie am Schulunterricht teil, was auch ohne ungarische Sprachkenntnisse gelang, weil die Partnerschule einen Schwerpunkt auf den bilingualen Unterricht legt, in dem die Unterrichtssprache Englisch oder eben auch Deutsch ist. Die Reise wurde nicht nur aus Klimaschutzgründen, sondern auch aufgrund der landschaftlichen Reize mit der Bahn durchgeführt.

Sehr positiv äußerten sich die Teilnehmerinnen über ihre Erfahrungen in den Gastfamilien:

„I am very happy with my host family. The family life was really relaxed and pleasant. I was able to talk a lot with my host family and felt comfortable. After Laura and Henrietta, my exchange partner and her mother, I am very welcome again.“

„My family in Hungary was so friendly and nice. I felt very good there because they laughed and made jokes all the time. It was so funny. I liked my host family so much.“

„I liked my host family very much. I could talk to everyone without having a weird feeling or something at all. In the evenings we had dinner together and talked about random things.“             

„We had a traditional Hungarian dish which was very tasty. I really liked the whole exchange and I am sad that my exchange student Veronika won’t come to Germany. I was very comfortable with the family because they were very friendly, so I felt at home instantly. To sum up, I can say that it was one of the best trips I have made so far.“

“ I was very happy with my exchange family. I felt connected to Fanni, my exchange student, very fast, and even though her parents couldn’t speak English or German, they were very friendly to me. I went to the citadel with my exchange family. There, we had an incredible view over the city, especially when it got dark. I got to taste Kürtöskalacs which is a kind of Hungarian street food. It tasted very good! All in all, the week was much fun, and if I had the opportunity, I would definitely do it again!“
