On my first day, when I came into the school, I was surprised! I asked myself where are all the students? From the information I was given, I was expecting twenty students per class, and that would have been a very small class in Germany.
Twenty students on a whole school would be impossible!
My school is near Starnberg in Bavaria, directly at the lake. It has a total of 740 students, organized in 21 classes, accommodated in 24 rooms, split into eight buildings.
I like the idea of having only four long lessons a day instead of at least six 45min lessons. I think many different people, from different ages, are as interesting as many people from your grade are. Although I really miss my loud and sometimes crazy, and sometimes really annoying class, I want to say thank you to all of you for to gathering Florian and me in such a way, and I’m looking forward to a great time, including interesting activities and lots of fun.
