Berlin 2012


Welcome to the History and Languages Visit to Berlin 2012 - Introductory talk.

This is a very exciting time as this is the first time we’ve offered a visit to Berlin. The 4 day visit is designed to support your child’s GCSE studies, both linguistically and historically, as well as a chance to experience another language and culture. The visit will run every two years and will run alternately with our Ethics and Philosophy visit to Rome.

I hope you find this evening valuable and I will answer as many questions as I can at the end.
