This was a cross-curricular History and German trip with some students focusing more on the historical and cultural aspects of Berlin while others were keen to improve their linguistic skills. Some activities were done together such as the informative guided walking tour on the first day and the incredibly moving and educational visit to Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Other outings were in two groups with the historians visiting the DDR museum for example while the linguists spent the morning in a German high school working with the students there. Everyone joined in with the social aspects of the trip alongside a group of German students and great fun was had by all at the bowling evening and last night meal out.
