Albany -- A group of Albany students will get a chance to put their language skills to the test. 

Four Westover High School students and their German teacher Brian Burton left Thursday for a 10-day trip to Germany.

This will be a chance for the students to use their German, as well as learn more about the country and its culture. 

"Basically learn about the culture, about Germany and how it differs from the United States; learn about the different sites, the museums and the heritage of Germany," said student Mary Majors.

During their stay in Germany, the group will stay in several hostels and spend one night in a Munich castle.
