Last year we set up the international cooperation as one of the goals for further development. This September 9 international students started the new school year with us. For almost 4 months 6 students from the bilingual English-Spanish school in Córdoba, Spain exchange their school, families and experience with 6 our students as part of the exchange program we developed with their sending school.
Annually, number of our students study a year or semester abroad. This year eleven our students take part in this intercultural program. On the other side, we received three foreign students (from USA, Brazil and Italy) who decided to spend part of their studies in the Czech Republic. We consider a great accomplishment that two families of our students volunteer as their host families.
As the cooperation with Chinese Hangzhou Wenlan Middle School continues, the delegation of 10 students and 6 teachers will attend our school by the end of September. Last year we started the new partnership with First English Language School in Sofia, Bulgaria and we are negotiating the dates of our visits. In October, 27 GMVV students travel to Germany for a week exchange program in Marktredwitz.
We are proud we had a chance to send nine our students as the representatives of Czech Republic to a cultural summer camp in Shangai for 12 days. All of them appreciated the stay as extraordinary and of great asset.
We perceive the calling of young people nowadays for contact with the world outside and we are fond to develop these opportunities for them. Due to their language skills our students are competent to study and represent us abroad and thanks to our open-minded staff we are able to create a motivational environment for the foreign students in our school.
