German international trade scholar spends part of year at Grovetown Substantial

In a year that is been difficult for travel, overseas exchange student Nina Steiner, 17, created the trip of a lifetime that could improve her lifestyle for good.

Steiner, who attends university at Bertha-von-Suttner Gesamtschule in Germany, spent the spring semester at Grovetown Significant School.

During her time in the U.S., Steiner experienced the opportunity to take a look at the Augusta place and attend the Columbia County Truthful with her new most effective close friend, Sam Lewis, who also attends Grovetown. The pair also took a journey to Tennessee.

Steiner has been trying American meals and eating places including two of her new favorites – Sour Patch Young ones and Taco Bell.

“We will not have those people in Germany,” she explained with a chuckle.

She also reported faculty construction is diverse from her school in Germany in which pupils just take 12 lessons per calendar year as an alternative of seven, despite the fact that the routine alternates through the 7 days so she does not show up at 12 courses in one working day. Every course is 67½ minutes extended and college students do not have the option of electives. German educational facilities, she said, also do not have sports activities but college students do participate in in club sporting activities very similar to a parks and recreation league. Although attending Grovetown, Steiner performed on the soccer staff.
