LEVEL: Medium Crossword by Myles Mellor and Susan Flanagan LIFE & ARTS the lake forest leader | November 9, 2017 | 17 Exchange program at Woodlands immerses students in new culture Woodlands students visit sister school in Vienna Alyssa Groh, Editor In college, many students take advantage of choosing to study abroad for a semester, immersing themselves in new cultures and traveling to many different countries. For 12 girls at Woodlands Academy, the chance to study abroad came before they even graduated college. Sophomores and juniors at Woodlands Academy embarked on a 10-day journey to Vienna, Austria, Sept. 28-Oct. 9 to visit their sister school, Sacré Coeur Wien, and learn about a new culture. “Because we are a Sacred Heart school we are part of a network of approximately 130 schools and [students] can go on an exchange to other Sacred Heart schools,” said Amy Perlick, the director of global education at Woodlands Academy. “The purpose (of the exchange program) is to open up a dialogue between schools and students, and get them to look beyond their little bubble here and get them to look outside themselves.” Sophomore Annika Swanson and junior Genevieve Makowski were two of the 12 students who traveled to Vienna as part of the exchange program. Swanson and Makowski said they chose to go on this trip because they both have heard positive things about the trip. During the 10 days the students are in Vienna, they stay with host families and are immersed into the daily lives of the locals. The students went to Woodlands Academy’s sister school daily, and learned about some of the differences between schools in the U.S. and Vienna. Swanson said one of the biggest differences between the schools was that instead of students changing classes each period, the teachers were the ones who traveled from class to class. The American students were also very surprised to learn how much freedom the students in Vienna have. During free periods students are able to leave the school and explore the city, as long as they are back in time for class. During one of the classes, students learned how to make schnitzel, apple strudels and German potato salad, which Makowski said was quite an experience as she is not much of a cook. In Vienna many of the local students take weekly dance classes where they learn how to perform the Vietnamese waltz. The students there work for months on perfecting the dance and then perform it in January at a very formal grand ball. Woodlands Academy students stepped up to the challenge and took a dance lesson to learn the Vietnamese waltz. Both Swanson and Makowksi agreed the dance lessons were a unique experience that they enjoyed and may never get the chance to do again. As for seeing what life is like in a different culture, Makowski said she really enjoyed staying with her host family. “[Staying with my host family] was a wonderful experience, I felt right at home,” Makowski said. “I got to see how family life works in Vienna, it is very similar to here.” Makowski said traveling to a different country and staying with a host family instead of staying in a hotel helped her understand the country more “It is one thing to visit a country and see all of the tourist attractions ... I have gotten to see the tourist side of Europe, but to be able to live with a family and see the real side of Europe was a very cool experience,” she said. The students spent their time outside of classes going sightseeing. One of the most memorable sightseeing trips for the girls was going to the Belvedere Palace, where they saw art and went to an opera. There were also a few days where the students had no plans, which gave the host families the freedom to take students sightseeing where ever they wanted. Among all the things the students learned during their 10-day journey in Vienna, Swanson said one thing she will take away from the trip is global connectedness. “Going on this exchange it really opened my eyes to all the global connectedness we have and how I am aware of the other (sister) schools, but there is so much more I could do to be in touch and connect with the other students,” Swanson said. The trip made Makowski realize how large the world is. “I have traveled a lot before, but every time you get to see a new corner of the world you realize it is still a huge place. It is sometimes hard to think about the scale of it,” she said. The students from Vienna will travel to Lake Forest in March, when they will spend a week in the boarding school and a week with host families.
