Chinese Students Visit Heidelberg


From July 2 to July 8, 25 children aged 9 to 12 from the Haimen Experimental Primary School in the province of Jiangsu, China, visited F+U Academy of Languages. Their goal: getting to know Germany’s culture and language. For most of them, it was their first visit to Germany and the first German course for all of them. Many were excited and full of expectations.

In the mornings, our Chinese guests took part in a German intensive course with 20 hours per week. Even without any previous knowledge there´s a lot to learn in a week! We asked them which German words they already know and our little Chinese guests didn´t only answer “Opa, Oma, Mama and Papa” (grandpa, grandma, mom, dad) but also more difficult words like “Lineal” (ruler) or “Bonbon” (candy). Counting from 1 to 20 works quite good as well.

There was also a lot of fun next to the studying. Every afternoon, exciting leisure activities were on the programme, for example a visit to Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart with a guided tour in Chinese. A guided tour through Heidelberg´s old town and soccer matches on the Neckar Meadow were part of those activities as well. Baking cakes, visiting Heidelberg Castle and playing soccer was what they liked the most. And the food was very nice as well!

The programme also included a visit to the Bilingual Primary School of the Heidelberg Private School Centre, where our Chinese guests participated in classroom lessons.

“Next to the leisure activities and the language course, the children also learned some useful things for their everyday life,” says Sophia Li, who accompanied the group. “They learned that you have to be quieter on a bus in Germany and need to tidy up your tray at the canteen yourself.”

The trip was worthwhile for the grown-ups who accompanied the group as well. They enjoyed Heidelberg’s welcoming atmosphere and picturesque landscape.

Would they like to visit F+U Academy of Languages again? Our Chinese guests did not need to consider that question very long, shouting “Yes” from every corner.
