From 18th to 21st of October the exchange students from Hungary and Romania came to Klagenfurt. First we met them in Minimundus. The Austrian students were divided into groups and mixed with exchange students to show them Minimundus. First it was not very easy to speak and understand the students, but then we started talking. Especially the Hungarian group was very nice and polite. But unfortunately it was very cold and it rained a little bit. On the second day of our project we made exercises in our class about the topics freedom, cohesion and conflicts. This was very funny and also a good idea to speak with each other. In the morning Michael and I did a presentation about Klagenfurt, its history and its sights. In the afternoon we all visited the city and showed the exchange students the famous buildings. In the evening Manuel, Michael Brunner, Maxi, Dorina and I went to a coffeshop and talked about money in Hungary. It was very interesting and we had a lot of fun. On Wednesday we all met in the morning and went by bus to Maria Saal. Unfortunately it rained a lot. We also visited the beautiful church. Then we arrived at the Duke’s Chair. Because of the rain and the low temperatures we did not stay long. Then we walked up the castle Hochosterwitz. This was not very fine because of the rain. When we arrived at the top, we visited the museum of the castle. There were many uniforms and weapons from the Middle Ages. Then we had the chance to buy some food. At midday we went by bus to Kreuzbergl. There we had something to eat, then we went to the botanic gardens and to the mining museum. We used the time to talk to the Hungarians. They taught us some Hungarian words and it was very funny. Also a very interesting part of the journey was the visit to the Observatory. There we had a wonderful view over Klagenfurt and the sun was shining. We laughed a lot. In the evening, at 8 p.m. we came together at school. There the teachers had prepared Gulasch-soup and cakes. We had a lot of fun. At the end the exchange students got some presents. Then we cleaned the room and went home. On Thursday some students of my class and I visited the ORF building with the exchange students. It was very interesting. There we also saw the studios and the cutting rooms. At midday we accompanied the Hungarian and Romanian students to the railway station. We had a lot of fun. But unfortunately they had to leave so early. We said good bye and off they went on the train. I think it was a very good idea to do this project, because I was able to find friends in other countries and I talked to them. The three days with them were very funny and I hope they will come back another time.(Lutnik)

In the evening we met at school, We ate, drank and laughed with the exchange students. It was very funny. On Thursday we went to the ORF building. There it was really very interesting. We saw how they make programmes and how they present the news. Then we showed the students the way to the railway station and waited with them for the train. All in all it was a very funny and interesting week. We learned much about communicating in English. Especially the Hungarians were very nice. (Pölzl)
The guests arrived at lunchtime and were welcomed by the teachers who took them to Minimundus. There we did a quiz and had to search different places. It was great fun although we had to speak English. On Tuesday we did project work with Mrs Jammer at school. We played games to get to know each other. It was quite interesting to get to know more about the guests and to cooperate with them. On the third day we had excursions and in the evening a farewell party. It was amazing, I had so much fun. I have to say it was a really great week. I would like to do something like that more often. (Jesse)

I can´t go to school because I am sick.
If I walk out my house I’ll get hit by a brick.
I can’t go to school because I’m afraid. On my way there I might get run over by a huge parade.
I can’t go to school because I have a funereal to attend. School uniforms just aren’t the new trend.
I can’t go to school because I woke up late. I broke my thumb while learning how to skate.
I can’t go to school because I feel a little blue. My brother stuck my hands together with supper glue.
I can’t go to school because school is boring. I wonder what excuses I’ll have tomorrow morning!
