Had a wonderful time with Centennial HS’s German 2 class today (despite my computer crashing 10 minutes before class). The students asked super thoughtful questions about contemporary German culture, POC and immigrant experiences, racism and politics, study abroad, and differences in lifestyle in Germany vs the US. Thank you to austrianashley for the invitation and for your dedication to inspiring the next generation to learn German!
This is my second year participating in this program and I highly recommend it! For all of us in higher ed, if you are eligible, please consider volunteering for next year’s program. It’s a wonderful opportunity to connect with HS teachers, talk with young students about important contemporary issues, and encourage them to continue studying German in HS and beyond.
