IVA Celebration – Oct 24

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.

KultCrossing Oct 23 – ‘We make radio’ with Elvis Katticaren

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!


Herzlichen Glückwunsch – Congratulations!

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!
