Day one: A visit throughout the school (Friskole in Ringe). A trip to the sea and playing mini golf at the coast.
Day two: We went to Odense and visited the museum of the history of Denmark from 1900 to 1990. Then we had a boat trip. Some of us went bowling, go carting and laser gaming.
Day three: A trip to Legoland.
Day four: A bike ride to Egelskov. We also had a water fight in the afternoon. The evening was spent with the families by having a group dinner and a presentation of the photos taken in Prague.
Day five: The journey back home.
What did the students say:
Sasha: The people were very kind and I really loved Legoland.
Martin: I think i have improved my English very much. And I loved the food, it was healthy and delicious. The sea was very cold though. But I didn’t like that the land is very flat there, so they can’t ski in winter.
Kate: I enjoyed the trip very much and I really wanted to stay there longer. The programme was amazing and the people were very nice. I truly want to go there again someday.
Mina: I loved the programme, and the trip to Legoland was the best.
Ota:It was super exciting and the weather was very nice.
Adam: I liked, that there were no hills, so when we rode the bikes, it wasn’t so tiring.
Jirka: It was fine. And I liked the ladies.
Matěj: I liked the view and people there really live in peace with the nature.
Lukáš: The people were nice and I don’t think words can really describe it.
Annie: It was quite peaceful and there weren’t many tourists thats what i liked about it.
Bára: The people were very nice and I enjoyed the trip very much.
Henry: The sea was salty. The black sand tastes better than the yellow one. I’m the best! (pls forgive this rather illogical comment)
Vendelín: I loved the food so much!
Tom: The people were great, I would like to visit them again.
John: It was rather nice to meet so many new people and to have fun with them.
Sandra: It was exciting and the people were very nice, I would love to go there once more.
Mary: The trip was wonderful, but it was rather short, and I will truly miss the people there.
Bára: I loved the trip, and it was nice to meet all the new people, I would like to go there again someday.
Shee: I finally achieved doing the backflip, while getting help from the coolest parkour master, and I jumped into ice cold sea, which was so cool!
Alice:I think that this programme is very edu. I learnt a lot from it, my Danish friends taught me Danish, while I taught them Czech and improved our English. The change of scenery was refreshing and I got to experience the life in the countryside. I’m sure that I will go there again some day. The Danish family treated me very well. I recommend this programme to all the students that are considering being a part of it. Legoland and the cycling trip were so exciting! As was the dare-jump into the sea.
As you can see, the trip received great comments from the students that enrolled. This programme is, always has been and always will be a success. It helps the students communicate, improves our English and opens our eyes to a whole different world. We encourage others that haven’t been there to enroll in the programme next year.
