Today was our second full day at Anne Frank Gymnasium, and it was fantastic!
Sunshine and cool temperatures replaced yesterday's frigid downpours.
My first lesson of the day was English with Heike- excuse me, Frau Armbrust- and her 9th grade students. They are currently studying Australia, and I learned many new things myself! For example, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing visible to the naked eye from space. That is incredible.
After English, I joined Madame Kleymann for my first French class.
This particular French class contains 11th grade students with varying levels of proficiency. I was a little nervous when I heard that I would be with several high school French classes because I am not a native speaker, but all was well and we conducted virtually the entire class in French!
Madame Kleymann and the students introduced themselves, asked me questions about myself, shared delicious Oreo cupcakes, and continued their lesson on the film collection "Paris Je T'aime". Madame Kleymann told me which short film they would be discussing next so that I could prepare some ideas. I am excited to help teach more next time!
What's on tomorrow's agenda, you ask? Why, we'll be meeting the Mayor of Werne. Pictures to follow!
As we say here in Germany, tschüss!
