Chulabhorn Science High School in Phitsanulok and Freihof Gymnasium Göppingen student exchange

Thai and German high school students visit the radiofips Studios to talk about their experiences and expectations of going abroad as well as cultural differences.

The umbrella theme for this year is exploring stereotypes.


Background: Initiated through a personal acquaintance between a Thai and German teacher, contact was made with Chulabhorn Science High School in Phitsanulok, a city about 380 km north of Bangkok. The school is a boarding school with a focus on science.

English is the language of communication between the German and Thai students.

Since the first meeting in 2011 as part of the International Pupil Exchange, several meetings have already taken place in Göppingen and in Thailand. During the two to three week stay in Thailand, the pupils are accommodated for a time in host families, in the boarding school of the school and also away from home. In addition to participating in school events and workshops (science experiments, sports competitions, cooking classes, traditional musical instruments, Muay Thai), there is also the possibility of excursions or other activities (UNESCO cultural world heritage site Sukhothai, elephant riding, rice harvesting, jungle trip, Buddhist meditation, etc.). A short stay in the capital Bangkok concludes the trip.

The participants are always impressed by the indescribably warm hospitality of the Thais and the rich Thai culture. However, the stark contrast between the very simple living conditions in the countryside and the temples of consumption in the big cities is also thought-provoking.

The costs for the 14-day exchange trip amount to approx. 600 - 900 EURO, depending on flight prices and subsidies from the PASCH or ENSA funding programmes.
