In Beirut and at School !

Greetings from Beirut!

I spent much of the weekend walking around the city - it is very fascinating!

It is still Winter here: it is cool (ca. 15 °C) and it is raining a lot. But sometimes the sun shines and it is very nice.

On Monday and today I spent some time at the school and took some pictures for you!
Here is the entrance (Eingang)
to the "High School".

Pupils (Schüler/-innen) in grades 9-12 go to school here.
This is where I will teach.

Here is the entrance to the Middle School.
Pupils (Schüler/-innen) in grades 5-8 go to school here.

This is also where the library (Bibliothek) and the cafeteria is.
The cafeteria (Mensa) offers (anbietet) sandwiches (also hamburgers, etc.), salads, ice cream, etc.

In back of (hinter) the cafeteria is a court (Hof) where pupils can "hang out" during their breaks (Pausen).

The teachers are all very nice (there are about 50 teachers!). I found out that I will teach two 9th grade (9. Klasse) classes and two 10th grade classes.

School starts at 8:00 am and ends at 3:15 pm.

The school also has a gymnasium (Sporthalle)


sports fields (Sport-felder)!

As you can see, the Mediter-ranean Sea (Mittel-meer) is very close!

The next time I will take some pictures of the classrooms (Klassenzimmer).

Bis bald!
