Deutsche Day-Trip

17 December 2018

To improve our students language skills, we took them on a city day-trip conducted entirely in German...

Learning a language in the classroom is a great start, but to truly master it, it helps to immerse yourself in the culture.

Students on our Diplom Hôtelier/ère-Restaurateur/rice HF programme learn German and French as part of their core modules to prepare them for exciting internship opportunities in Switzerland.

In order to put their language skills to the test, we took a group of the students for a day tour of Luzern, which included a boat tour and a luxury hotel visit, conducted entirely in German.

To start the day, the students took a boat tour around Lake Lucerne. However, in order to enjoy the experience, they first had to negotiate buying the tickets, checking the costs and asking questions about the duration and route of the tour.

Once back on dry land, our linguists then visited Luzern’s five-star Hotel Schweizerhof where they were treated to a guided tour of the property (auf Deutsch natürlich).

The hotel visit had the joint benefit of allowing more German language practice while at the same time giving the students an insight into the operational management of a leading, luxury property.

Our students had a wunderschönen Tag and returned back to school with a new-found confidence in, and enthusiasm for, the German language!
