So, what’s all this twinning actually about? Well to give you some idea, here’s our twinning story. We only got into it last year, as a result of hearing about it from someone in our French class. To be honest, I wasn’t at all sure about it to begin with. It actually seems a bit daunting, as you pack up your bags and head off to the ferry at Plymouth, knowing at the other end you’ll be staying with a family you’ve never met. The twinning committee’s match the French and English families, so that you should end up staying with someone of roughly the same age and interests.
