27 students of 3AKN and 3BKN, accompanied by Prof. Müller and Prof. Noll, spent a week (1 to 7 April) in Ireland to apply and improve their English skills and get to know the culture of an English-speaking country.
The students were staying with host families in Bray, a small seaside town near Dublin. In the mornings they had lessons at ATC language school where they learned a lot about the differences between Austria and Ireland. Eventually, they presented their findings by writing the script of a radio programme and recording it.
In the afternoons the students enjoyed a guided tour through the city of Dublin, visited the Guiness Storehouse, saw the Book of Kells, did the Bray Cliff Walk and had a good time at the entertainment center Bray Bowl. On Sunday, 2 April, the group took a daytrip to Glendalough where they admired the world famous monastic site and enjoyed walking around the beautiful lakes. Afterwards they visited Wicklow Gaol, a very old prison that has been transformed into an exciting museum. As the weather was lovely, it was nice to spend time outdoors. The students were lucky: they saw hundreds of sheep with their newborn lambs and even a huge seal!
