Feedback from Germany

Hi A,

Ek het die email na C geforward.

Ek kan jou egter verseker dat my kind blom in Duitsland! Uit elke boodskap wat sy stuur kan ons sien hoe gelukkig sy is. Haar facebook profile het laasweek gelees: “Ek kon nie vir ‘n beter familie en skoolmaats gevra het nie!” Dit sê alles!!! Baie dankie vir hierdie wonderlike geleentheid wat julle my kind gegee het – sy sal dit nooit vergeet nie!!! Sy is eintlik ‘n baie stil kind maar ek kan sommer hoor hoe sy ontpop het.

Lekker dag vir julle!

Halo,, dis amazing!!!!

Dit was bitter maklik om aan te pas en die Duitsers is ongelooflike mense!

Dis meer en beter as wat ek ooit oor gedroom het!

Hallo,

I enjoy Germany so much. It’s already my second week here and it feel like I got here just yesterday, the time really flies. I am well and I get along so well with my host family. I feel very at home here and my family is just so sweet. I like the school most, everybody is so friendly and I’ve made so much new friends here. I know most names of the children in my class and they are trying to teach me some German. I pick up the words quite fast but can’t make out sentences yet. Lucky for me, they speak English when I am around. I also liked to do my presentations and I think I gave them a new view of South-Africa. They find some of our traditional meals very interesting and also how my school works. J also from the FSA is in the same school as me and we talk about our experiences here when we have a lesson together. Thanks for the opportunity and all the trouble I think It’s all worth it.

Gute Tag

Hallo T A!!

It is my Second week indeed and it frightens me to imagine that there is only two weeks left!

But as my good friend always says, "don’t count the days, make the days count" – and that has been my motto throughout the trip!

I am doing extremely well thank you very much! I cannot even start to explain how blessed I am to have this amazing family!

They truly go the extra mile, and naturally I do my best to do the same for them.

I don’t want to refer to them as hosts as they are much more than that! #FAMILY!

They treat me like one of their own and try to expose me to as much of Germany as possible.

I feel like a real German some days and even though their routines are worlds apart from ours I am getting used to it and I actually like the change.

School is great! We are even planning a farewell sleepover!

Thank you for this amazing opportunity you have created for teens such as myself, and many others to experience this life changing event!

Liewe A

Ek kan nie beskryf wat n ongelooflike tyd ek hier het nie. Natuurlik voel dit asof die tyd hoopeloos te vinnig verby gaan, maar elke oomblik maak ek een om te onthou. Ek het van die eerste dag af ingepas by my familie en kan nie genoeg dankie se vir die wonderlike geleenthede wat hulle vir my gee nie. Hulle maak dit vir my so gemaklik en die gedagte dat ek moet terug kom is bietjie van n bitter pil om te sluk, maar kan nie wag om my ouers weer dankie te se dat hulle my droom laat waar word nie. Die skool is n belewenis en n half en ek het vriende gemaak vir n leeftyd. Ons almal lag elke dag en leer baie van mekaar en verkeer sosiaal na skoolure ook.

Dankie vir die inloer.

Groete

M

Goeie more A,

Dit gaan goed met S en hy is altyd baie opgewonde oor als in Duitsland wanneer ons praat. Ek mis hom egter vreeslik.

Die P is baie dierbaar en doen baie moeite vir hom. Ek hoop die kinders wat die kans kry om aan die program deel te neem besef hoe bevoorreg hulle is.

Mooi dag

Hi A

M geniet die program verskriklik en die gasouers en kinders is ook baie goed vir haar!

Ons kan nie verbeter gevra het nie, dit laat my baie gerus voel!

Dankie vir al jul harde werk en om dit vir ons as ouers veilig te laat voel.

Mooi bly

  1. Hello! Germany is amazing!! The whole experience is an amazing adventure that I am going to remember forever. The family is great. They try their very best to make me feel at home and include me in everything they do – like a real family. The country is beautiful and walking or riding bike to school or town is great fun. I have had the opportunities to do a lot of new exciting things and together with the family planning to do or see as much as possible! going to school, meeting the mayor of the town, talking to the other German students or even to the other Exchange students here with me, or going hiking in the breathtaking mountains all make the unforgetable memories! Of course there are times that you miss your family and friends back home like crazy but that is also part of the experience. I would like to thank you for this great opportunity! Greeting from Halberstadt🙂
