German conversation – Friday

Summer holidays for some of us so this month we’ll visit Crets en Belledone,a little village at the foot of the French Alps.The local school here has been struggling with low numbers and threatened with class closures. A local farmer took 50 of his sheep to the school and parents and teachers watched as 15 of them were signed up-complete with names[Baa-bete and Saute Mouton]and birth certificates and recognised by the local mayor.The school remains open.

Can’t imagine that happening in Germany!
