What the German Academy learned today:

We are coming to a close on week one, and the German Academy is doing great. Students are learning so many important skills that will make new beginnings much easier in the future. Today the German Academy reviewed grammar and went over daily routines. Since they are a close-knit group, they get a lot of one on one time with teachers to improve their verbal skills. Last night, they watched the German Film Award for Best Picture winner, Das Wunder Von Bern. 

During activities hour, a group of students played dodgeball in the gym to stay out of the rain and the other group held a café conversation.On Saturday, there is a field trip to downtown Burlington  and later, students will be playing a dating show game for some light-hearted fun.   

Check back on Monday to read more about the German Academy!
