School in Germany

September 12, 2009 - Tessa Makepeace
I realized that I haven’t really said anything about what classes I am taking in school so here it goes. I got a schedule of my own last week. Before that I was using my friend Desiree’s, which wasn’t that big of a deal because my class has most things together. Now on Mondays I have English, free periods, Chemistry, and History. Tuesday I have Social Studies, Music, History, and Biology. Wednesday I have French with the seventh graders, free period, Math, English, and German. Thursday I have French, free, Chemistry, German, and Math. Friday I have Biology, History, Math, Religion, and German. A lot of the hours are double class periods, meaning I have 45 minutes of class, a five minute break, and another 45 minutes of the same class.

The Rotary Club in my District in Germany is pretty well organized and they try to do a lot with the 40 ish exchange students in our district. I met all the exchange students near this area last weekend on Saturday when we had our first get together in Gifhorn. The man in charge of our district gave a small presentation, we ate, and got to know each other. A lot of the kids hardly know any German, so we spoke English all day, which was kind of nice. Next weekend I will be in Hannover with the same people. The weekend is set up by Rotex, the group related to Rotary made up of people who have already been exchange students.

This weekend has been busy also. On Friday, I stayed overnight with two of my friends at one of the girls’ bungalows less than an hour from here. We went swimming, ate, and hung out. It was nice:)
