The Dutch Experience for ISPiP students in Gulpen

Between 30 March and 7 April, The Sophianum International Stream Students welcomed students from Enger, Freigericht, Wroughton, Lecce and Utebo to their homes.

The students were introduced to sthe school and surrounding area by means of a heritage trail in Gulpen. They had 3 blocks of Dutch Lessons, sat in with ‘normal classes’ and visited some companies in the area. Instead of University visits, which were impossible that week, they visited the House of European History in Brussels.

In addition to the challenges they had set themselves, they were given challenges on a daily basis, varying from: ‘buy a Dutch snack (in Dutch of course) and eat it’ to ‘while on the company visit,ask a question relating to your personal challenge’. Video evidence of having tackled the challenges had to be supplied.
