Get to know JEMS' exchange student from GermanyJordan-Elbridge Middle School students have been getting to know a new classmate. Luis Becker traveled to the United States from Muehlhausen, Germany, and now studies as an 8th grade exchange student at JEMS. His host brother, Gunnard Gustafson, said it’s been fun having someone to hang out with because he’s an only child.
Luis said school is a lot different in Germany. His school is a lot bigger than JE, because students in grades 5-12 are in the same school building. He said the atmosphere at school is also a lot different, explaining that sports aren’t practiced where he attends school in Germany; instead, it’s all about the classwork.
Luis called his time so far at JE a once in a lifetime experience, and said he wants to study abroad again when he’s in high school. He will be studying at JEMS for one month, through March 5th. To learn more about where Luis is from and what he likes most about learning here at JEMS, watch the video below! You can also access the video through this link.
