Irlandreise der 6. Klassen

On Sunday the 30th of March we, the students of 6ABC, went to Vienna airport to head off for Dublin. After landing in Dublin in the afternoon, we went to Clonmacnoise, an old abbey. Later on we continued our journey to Galway, where our host families were already waiting for us.



As you can imagine, we were quite excited about getting to know them.

From Monday to Friday we attended English classes in the mornings, which was really great fun, and we learned a lot about Irish cultural life and every-day English.

In the afternoons we visited a lot of sights, such as the Cliffs of Moher,  Kylemore Abbey in Connemara and the National Aquarium of Ireland.

While we were staying in Galway, we did some shopping at Eyre square, or we did interviews on different topics with Galway natives. There was a variety of questions on topics like education or Irish food. This was a very interesting work to do and we were amazed how friendly and kind the Irish were and all people were eager to answer our questions.

All in all, our week in Ireland was an amazing experience which was simply enjoyable. We all are of the opinion that such an intensive language week is a really great way to improve your English and gain more self-confidence.

Finally we want to thank our teachers: Prof. Traar, Prof. Stolz, Prof. Steinbrucker for being patient with us all the time, and especially Prof. Scheucher for organising the whole trip.


On May 8th we had a parents’ night where we did presentations and performed sketches. We also showed a film and pictures, so that our parents got an impression of what life in Galway and Ireland is like. After the little performances we had a special treat for our parents. We served them Guinness, sandwiches and scones we had prepared. All in all it was a very pleasant evening.

At this point we also want to say thank you to our parents who have made this journey possible for us.
