For 3 days in May the American teachers from JSE put a special shine on the language skills of our 3rd form students. Apparently, only flying over pond could have topped the experience. There were suddenly very professional looking film teams all over the Riedenburg campus, the delicious smell of pancakes filled the gardens and the school and what’s more, English was to be heard even from the sports grounds from very athletic American football players. A longstanding success story that will be continued next year. Over-the-top exaggerated? Well, here is some feedback, from our students.
We didn’t like JSE – we LOVED it!
Everything was so cool. The best thing, of course, was making pancakes. We made about twenty of them, and they all tasted delicious. But playing American football was also a lot of fun, and we also liked playing games like 20 Questions.
We’ve learned a lot, like how to pronounce some words correctly – and we also dare to talk in English more now.

What I liked most about the workshop was that we dared to speak English and to ask questions. Also, we had a lot of fun together. My highlight was making the film with my friends. Additionally, I learned how to play American football and how to write a script and make a short video-clip.

Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen, weil es sehr abwechslungsreich war und sehr viel Spaß gemacht hat. Am meisten mochten wir die Filme, weil wir dabei sehr fantasiereich sein und mit unseren Freundinnen arbeiten konnten. Außerdem haben wir versucht – und es geschafft! – mehr und besser English zu reden, und wir wünschen den nächsten dritten Klassen viel Spaß beim Workshop!

We liked the JSE workshop very much because it was a lot of fun. Of course, our highlight was eating pancakes. They were so yummy! But we also learned how to make a short movie and to play American football. It was great!

Recently, we have had a very entertaining English workshop. We really enjoyed it because we did amazing things! Our highlight were the pancakes because they were fun to make and tasted very good. But thanks to JSE we also learned how to play American football and to speak English fluently!

During the three days I really enjoyed making the film and I also liked to play football with my friends. However, my highlight was to bake pancakes. Also, I think I speak and understand English better now!

Wir hatten einen 3-tägigen Englisch-Workshop mit vier sehr netten Amerikanern, und hatten dabei sehr viel Spaß. Es war eine sehr schöne Abwechslung zum normalen Englisch-Unterricht, da das Sprechen im Vordergrund stand. Unsere Highlights waren das Drehen von Kurzfilmen und das Backen von Pancakes. Wir lernten, wie wir die englische Sprache im Alltag anwenden können. Am Ende dieser drei Tage war unser Selbstbewusstsein in der englischen Sprache um einiges gestiegen. Mittlerweile trauen wir uns, einfach draufloszureden.

We liked the workshop very much, because the teachers were very nice, and it was cool to spend so much time with them. We learned how to bake really delicious pancakes, and to speak English better – and we also learned that Jacob is not Daniel Radcliffe! 😊

I really enjoyed playing American football because I like this sport a lot. Also, I really liked baking pancakes and learning new vocabulary.

We liked the workshop very much. The best part was when we got to make films, and so we learned that school can also be fun! 😉
