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!
