Thank you very much Yew Chung for your invitation and kind hospitality!
We are Inés and David, students of 1st ESO. We have been on a trip to Hong Kong for a fortnight. It was from 23rd January to 3rd February. We went there with our teacher Carmen Santiago. We had been invited by Yew Chung International School of Hong Kong to visit the school and the city.
Both of us were hosted by two very nice families. Inés stayed at Lina’s house and David at Tsz Yau’s house. Our host families were very kind to us and they made us feel at home. Carmen stayed at the residence YWCA near the school. Our contact in Hong Kong was Mr. Edward Hepting who is the manager of World Classroom of Yew Chung International School.
With Mr. Hepting, we visited Chinese temples, The Big Budha, different islands, Disneyland Hong Kong, Ocean Park and many more areas of Honk Kong. In addition, we spent three days at the school sharing lessons with our buddies and their classmates. Everybody was great so we did not feel strange students at their school but totally integrated into their routine.
The aim of this trip was to strengthen ties of friendship with the students of the 8th year who are coming to Barcelona to visit us in May and with Yew Chung school. This aim was fulfilled successfully. We enjoyed our host families, the school, the city, our guide …. We are in contact with our buddies by skype or whatsapp and we are looking forward to their visit in May. We would like to fly to Hong Kong again!!
