At our meeting on Friday February 6th, the German teacher from the Ralph Allen School and five of her pupils gave us at talk and presentation of photographs from their recent visit to the Franzsches Feld School in Braunschweig. The children enjoyed their visit, and told us about the school itself and how the children there learn English. They were very impressed by the level of their English speaking. During the visit the children went to the VW works at Wolfsburg and other places of interest. The children stayed with host families, some of whom were lucky enough to visit Hamburg and Berlin. Good friendships have developed between the school and the children, and it is hoped that a party of children from Braunschweig will visit Bath in the near future.
