AGURAINGOAK IN GERMANY

LEARNING GERMAN, WATCH THESE VIDEOS

Last April I went to Germany with my classmates for a week. It was a student exchange. We did a lot of activities and a lot of work. We had prepared some Basque dancing lessons to teach them how to perform Courienta and Pxit (watch the videos on you tube). Some other students took part in the Comenius project, so they had to explain them how to do some Basque Rural sports. We trained a lot before going to Germany and recorded some videos.

 In Germany, we had to ask about the German school system and wrote a report of the visit afterwards. We learnt that the education system is quite different. After kindergarten, students attend compulsory school for nine or ten years. From grades 1 through 4 children attend elementary school: GRUNDSCHULE. The subjects taught are the same for all. The main difference is that after the 4th grade, they are separated according to their academic results or abilities, although parents have the final say in some places, Grundschule teachers recommend the students one type of school or the other. As a result, they choose one of the three kinds of schools: Hauptschule, Realschule or Gymnasium.
