Hallo! This video is about 9 different things that I dislike about German High School (AKA Gymnasium)! Please keep in mind they are specific to my circumstances as an exchange student, and I am simply comparing them to what I have experienced in America. I hope you enjoy hearing the perspective of a foreigner going to German school!

I think the reason most schools don't use google drive is because of the good old "Datenschutz"

I see GERMAN in the title

I scroll down to the comments and know that my Brüder and Schwestern will welcome me with open arms.

"In Germany, when there is snow on the ground, you still have to go to school!" - I laughed so hard. :D

Wir müssen auch zur Schule, wenn Sturm Sabine uns um die Ohren weht. Gut, dass die wenigstens bei Corona dicht machen

Google Drive isn't used in school because of Data Security. Students shouldn't be forced to create an account, just to be able to get schooled.

Also ich bin im Moment in Virginia und mache dort ein Austauschjahr. Ich stimme ihr echt zu was die Technologie angeht, aber in einigen Punkten lerne ich hier in den US auch wirklich das deutsche Schulsystem schätzen. Montana, du gehst vermutlich auf eine Privatschule in den USA, basierend auf deine Erzählungen. Selbst wenn sie öffentlich war, ist Richmond relativ wohlhabend. Der Fakt, das Universitäten und Schulen in Deutschland umsonst sind und die Gelder nicht von dem Gehalt des Landkreises basieren ist wirklich großartig, und vergrößert Soziale Gerechtigkeit.
Was die mündlichen Noten angeht: aus meiner persönlichen Erfahrung heraus kann ich sagen, dass es die Beteiligung im Unterricht verbessert. Gerade in den social studies hier, wie Geschichte, ist die Klasse oftmals ein bisschen tot, einfach weil der Antrieb sich zu melden und zu beteiligen fehlt. Okay, das waren nur Sachen die mir im Vergleich aufgefallen sind - super interessant die Thematik aus der ganz entgegengesetzten Perspektive zu sehen :)

There are no sports teams at school, as we have "Vereine". There you can train the sport you like (or make music, etc.). I found this a better solution than to stay all the day with other kids I did not like.

For me as an introvert "mündliche Noten" are the true horror, I would be easily one grade better in every Subjekt if they would just grade my work

Busses don’t get called of in Germany, they just run late sometimes 😂

For your last point about the high school spirit: I think the main reason for that in Germany is, that we do sports independently from school in our free time. We can't connect through sports that are extracurricular activities at school because there are only few, at least at my school

8:06 Well, it's a gymnasium, which is usually geared towards getting people into university. Being able to write coherent sentences is part of that. Not ideal for people who don't speak the language, that's true. Oral participation grades kind of suck when you're quiet, I had to rely on my written work. Truly awful in subjects where oral participation counted more than the written tests towards the final grade.

The problem with Google drive is the unsafetyness. We Germans are really paranoid with our security online. So we use more usb

Does it help, that we can‘t read the teacher’s handwriting either?
