Milwaukee German Immersion School

March 8th, 2011

As you may know from other blog entries, Wisconsin Lutheran College has a great relationship with the Milwaukee German Immersion School.

 

Every year the GER 202 students visit Frau Arndt (a 2005 WLC graduate, pictured below, center) and her third grade classroom. Despite having her first baby on the way very soon, Frau Arndt welcomed in the GER 202 students, who each came to read a German children’s book to the class.

The kids had a great time with the WLC students, who led a short discussion on the reading afterward. Of course, the third graders had a lot to share about their impressions of the book as well!

 

It’s a unique experience for the GER 202 students to get a taste of a German immersion program outside of WLC. It’s fascinating to see children so young speaking German fluently and spontaneously. We had a great time, and we look forward to visiting with Milwaukee German Immersion School students again!
