Summer Students Have Virtual Visits to Germany

This summer MLA students were able to take a German course that introduced not only language but the culture and sites of Germany. They participated in virtual visits and were able to view sites in Southern Germany as live participants. Some of the locations that students observed were the Dachau concentration camp near Munich, the birthplace of Albert Einstein in Ulm, a well-preserved medieval town founded in 1274 called Rothenburg, and the castles at Schwangau. The castle pictured is Hohenschwangau near the Bavarian Alps and the Black Forest. The Black Forest is where Grimms Fairy Tales are thought to be born. Students were able to have lessons on these famous fairy tales to increase their learning about German history and culture. Students were inspired to learn more about this beautiful country and its rich history.
