International Youth Day 2017

I have never been to a different country but I have met someone from one. I can’t remember her name , but she was a German exchange student in my French class. She was a Junior and school where she lived sounded a lot different from school in America. They never had pre-determined class schedules (for instance here in America, we have class from one time ((8:00)) to another ((3:00)) 5 days a week, but in Germany, they would sometimes have class from 12:00 to 6:00 and other days 8:00 to 3:00.) They also allow drinking at an earlier age, 16, to prevent a larger urge to drink when you’re older. I wish I got to speak to her more to learn more about life in Germany, as I’ve always been interested in taking a vacation there.
