12th Grade Trip: Burgau Gymn. Writes

This piece brings up many questions.  First, how do our senior activities compare with those at our partner school?

Check also the student reviews which follow this piece.  Do you agree with them?  Keep in mind that these students are also interested in what we, from their partner school in the USA, have to say about their assignments.   

As you've seen above, I've posted several others. This is the final one.  Do you feel the teacher's lessons have been well-learned and exemplified in these writings?

And what might we do with these pieces?  Might we collect them in preparation for our visit in a few months? Might we otherwise respond to them?  I'm leaving this to you!  -- rsb

Course Trip

Vacation in school? Yeah, it's cool!

A highlight in the 12th grade in Germany is visiting important cities with your intensive course. By the way, the intensive course means you spend five lessons a week on your favourite subject.
The best about the trip is that you spend the best weeks of the school year together with your teacher! Without him, the trip would be pointless, right? You visit famous places, see sights and if you are lucky, the sun is so strong that you die. And when you think the day is over, a teacher will come into your room and ask you to write a summary of the day. Sure it is fun, isn't it? But in the evening you are finally allowed to party with your friends.

The next morning you are so tired that you cannot do anything. You just follow the teacher, half-sleeping behind your sunglasses, to the next point of the programme. But never forget: The show must go on. In order to keep your teacher smiling, you can hear a question from somewhere in the crowd — but only from time to time. At the end of the trip you should have seen a lot, but the question is whether you remember it.

hello guys,
We think that your text is very nice and so true. Everytime at a trip it is like in the text, but there are some irony we don't understand! In our opinion the sentence "if you are  lucky, the sun is so strong that you die." is not so clear, because at first we thought "What the hell do they mean?!" it is not clear irony because the sentence is a little bit confusing. But all in all we very very like your text it is  very funny and understandable (y)
love you Girls :)

Your text is interesting and it is funny to read. You used many stylistic devices for example much irony, accumulations, or hyperboles.
The sentence structure is very varied and so the text attractive. You speak directly to the reader through the whole text. That is very good!  All in all you did a good job!!

You explained well what pupils and their teachers do on a School trip together.
The text is interesting, because you used stylistic devices like irnoy and rhetorical questions and it's not too Long, but all important Information are in.
You also used the famous sentences "The Show Must Go On".   --  Niklas R., Katja, Eva

I think you write a funny text about this topic. You use very much irony. This entertain the reader really good. Also there are other stylistic devices for example in line 4 is a rhetorical question.
All in all the text is really and I laugh very much!

Your text is good structured and it is funny to read. You used many stylistic devices like irony, enumerations and hyperboles. You also used adjectives and Adverbs. You have a lot of information and all in all a very nice text.  Well done! :-)
