In total, eleven of our children and teenagers passed the IVA (Internationale Vergleichsarbeit) exam. To honor their great accomplishment, we had a small celebration. Irene Mrazek, the German Language Consultant for the Central Agency for German Schools Abroad (Zentralstelle fuer Auslandsschulwesen) in Colorado came to Boulder to hand out the certificates.
A group of students, parents and staff members had fun on October 23 & 24 while learning how to produce a podcast. Elvis Katticaren from Germany taught and demonstrated what radio producers do …and on the second day, it was hands on! We produced a survey with the topics
‘What are the cultural differences between the US and Germany?’,
‘Why should one learn a second language?’ and
‘What are biases of Germans against Americans and vice versa?’
Curious about our thoughts? Stay tuned – We will upload the professionally edited mp3 file soon!
This year, we offered for the first time the exams for the IVA (Internationale Vergleichsarbeit) and the German Language Diploma (Deutsches Sprachdiplom, DSD) at our school for our children and teenagers. These are official exams from the German government given to German schools abroad. ALL students who participated passed the exam! We are very proud of you!
Our May Celebration was a great success!!
About 50 people of all ages had fun dancing around or May Pole, crafting flower wreaths, enjoying delicious German food, laughing and chatting!
Thanks a lot to Jubilations Catering for the culinary contribution!
Thanks to the Commission for Human Relations of the City of Boulder that sponsored our event.
Our teenagers in the Youth Club had an exciting Sunday afternoon in the laboratory of Prof. Hoenger at the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology.
