My name is Savannah and I am sixteen years old. I am from Jacksonville, Florida, but I am spending my junior year abroad in Germany . Germany is a lot different than the United States. For one thing it is freezing here. English is definitely my favourite subject in German school. I love hearing the other kids accents. They are so cute! It is going to be sad to leave and go back home at the end of the year.
Hi, my name is Michael, 16, from Mülheim in Germany.
My favourite hobbies are going fishing and playing football. My brother Fabian is going to study in Hamburg, a big city in Northern Germany. I´m really exicted to go there and visit him at his place in my next school holidays.
I'm Daniel, 16 years old. in the photo I am the guy with black hair.
In my free time I like doing sports like football, table- tennis or workout at the gym. I also meet friends like every 16-year-old boy does and I listen to music, especially to electronic and house music.
My name is Sören. In the picture I'm the one on the right with the long blond hair. I'm sixteen years old. My nickname is Schlaxx because I'm so tall. Ever since the age of five I have played basketball and in May I started going to the gym every day for workout. The stupidest thing I've ever done was when I broke my jaw because I kicked my knee into my face after falling down from the trampoline.
Travel to school
As everyone knows, it is important to start your day right. Even on your way to school there could be many possible complications, which ruin your good mood. You can miss the train, the bus or the subway. The bus is too crowded so that you can’t take the bus. Some people annoy you all the way to school. Bad weather is making you feel lost and lonely. You step into a puddle and are wet from top to toe. Your bicycle wheel has a big hole and you have to walk to school. You don’t wake up and can’t grab breakfast. Dad’s car is caught up in a traffic jam. It rains so hard, actually it would not have been necessary to take a shower.
All these things could complicate the school start of German pupil, who walk, get a lift in your parents' car, take the bus, train or subway or ride the bike.
So life isn’t easy for German pupils and good school days are rare, but sometimes you are a bit lucky....
