Language week of 4b and 4c in Bray/Dublin
“If you don’t like the weather, wait for 10 minutes” – The students of 4b and 4c found out about the meaning of this Irish “saying” … and that sometimes you have to wait a little longer to see the sunny side of Bray.
Enthusiastic local teachers provided our students with insights into Irish politics, Brexit and the world of work. The students could improve their communicative skills and even learn a few Gaelic words. Classrooms with a view on the Irish Sea proved highly motivational.
Various activities in the afternoons also offered plenty of opportunities to get to know Irish history and nature. A cliff walk from Bray to Greystones and to the “summit” of Bray Head on the sunniest day of the week and an excursion to Wicklow Gaol and the medieval monastic site of Glendalough were among the highlights for the avid photographers in the group.
Students could also visit picturesque Malahide Castle and bet on dogs in the Greyhound Races at Shelbourne Park. Others opted for shopping in Henry Street and exploring Dublin in their own time.
