Girls are in one area and boys are in another area. Wynchemna tries to place students who speak different languages together so that the students have to speak English with one another. The thrill of meeting someone new is a great chance to practice your English. If you come to Wynchemna with a friend, s/he will probably be less than a minute away in another room. You are more than welcome to go and visit your friend. Every student is in the same position. Who is going to share the apartment with me? Will this new student like me? Go up and introduce yourself. You may come from different countries, but you have a lot more in common than you think. Ask your new apartment mate what kind of music s/he is interested in? Teach your new friend a card game. Teachers will always announce a time when students have to be in their apartments and students then have half an hour (30 minutes) to chat with roommates before going to bed. Bedtime is usually between 22:30 and 24:00.
