Lukukauden alussa Elisenvaaran lukiota kunnioitti vierailullaan vaihto-oppilas. Saksalainen Ina vietti lukiossa vain yhden jakson, sillä hän teki vaihtovierailun kesälomallaan ja palasi kotiin saksalaisten koulujen lukukauden alussa syyskuussa. Alla Inan kuvaus kokemuksistaan Elisenvaarassa.
While I was staying in Finland as an exchange student, I had to attend school of course. At first, I did not like that idea because it had been my summer vacation. But I got to know Elisenvaaran Lukio as a really great school.
My first day here was also the first one for many new students. So there was mass of information and advisory to give by the teachers, which meant to me talking in Finnish for ages. But fortunately I was saved by the headmaster after lunch. He showed me the whole school and my classrooms. Then I went to the music lesson with the second graders. I could take part in there without speaking or understanding much of the language.
After that first day, I got used to my new daily rhythm quite quickly. A huge help in that case were some girls I became friends with and also the teachers who were really nice and engaged to integrate me in their lessons, even though I spoke only a little Finnish.
Well I should rather say, that the communication never had been a problem here. The students spoke English and a little German to me. The same did most of the the teachers, and important instructions were translated by my classmates.
I also was surprised how individually I was treated. I could choose between several timetables and switched between two classes so I never felt bored. Additionally they arranged Finnish lessons in which I finally got the chance to learn something. Also my arts teacher gave me the instructions to some tasks in written English which was way easier for the both of us.
And when I had any questions or did not know what to do, I always knew where to ask for help. All in all I can say, I really had a great time here and I would gladly return at anytime.
