This year for the first time, BIS partnered with a grammar school in Germany, namely the Schönborn Gymnasium in Bruchfels near Stuttgart. As a precursor to this visit, in October 2013, German students from the Schönborn Gymnasium spent two weeks in Mumbai. The students stayed with host families of BIS. While the programme was packed with several activities, there was a lot of sharing and immense learning.
Students of our school will be visiting Germany, where they will be staying with German host families for a period of ten days. This will not only enhance language skills for our students, but give them the chance to learn about the culture, traditions and life related to the language they are learning. In addition lifelong friendships and a better understanding of each other’s countries are formed.
