The visit took place on 5th May 2016, when thirteen future teachers from Leer in Niedersachsen visited among other high schools in Ljubljana also The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium. Under the leadership of prof. dr.  Johan Sjuts, the director of Studienseminar Leer für das Lehramt an Gymnasien, the group of teacher novices and their supervisors annually visit a different European country, observe classes and respective national educational systems in private and state sectors. In St. Stanislav’s Institution, the group was welcomed by the director dr. Roman Globokar, then the class observation of their choice took place.  Classroom management and instructional techniques were observed in the following classes: English, German Latin, Mathematics and Physics. The informal meeting and the tour of the school followed. Dr. Sjuts accentuated that the entire party was impressed by classes, school’s history, and the tour. “Ethos is one of the first things we have noticed here, apart from strong commitment to the cause, which both definitely contribute to a successful educational process”, said dr. Sjuts. Irena Bolta, teacher of German at The DCG was in charge of the visit. /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
