Meet a German Day at BLS!

Fullbrighters from Germany visit BLS German classes to celebrate the Day of German Unity

The German-American Fulbright Commission and the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) invited K-12 schools to host a Meet-a-German* event on October 3rd -- the Day of German Unity -- to kick off Deutschlandjahr USA/ Year of German-American Friendship 2018-19 in their local communities. On October 3rd current and former Fulbrighters visited schools and engaged students in Germany-related, fun, and interactive learning activities focused on contemporary Germany.

BLS was fortunate to host Fullbrighters Friederike von Reden and Bernd Kohler throughout the day as they met with German students in all levels to talk with them in German about contemporary life in Germany. It was a great experience for the students to #meetagerman! Thanks to Ms. Kuchta for organizing the event, and danke to our guest speakers for a wonderful day! #wunderbartogether #fulbrightgerman
