Languages International students at the Cheese Mongers in Christchurch, New Zealand

On Wednesday ten of us went to the Cheese Mongers. This shop is only 5 minutes away from Languages International Christchurch. Sarah, the owner, gave us an interesting talk about the cheeses in the cold room. Some of the cheese is very special – for example a Swiss cheese which costs $100 a kilo and is made by hand in only one small village in Switzerland. New Zealand cheeses are also stocked, and students enjoyed tasting everything. For some of them, it was the first time they had tasted blue cheese, sheep’s or goat’s milk cheese. Not everybody liked all the tastes, but we all had a good time!
