Waldsee German Language Village, the German immersion program of Concordia Language Villages, is offering opportunities to teachers to join in the fun and excitement of Waldsee while keeping your German fresh with native speakers, finding out about cutting-edge techniques, and simply enjoying some time in a German environment – all close to home and free of charge.
As you may know, Waldsee offers one, two- and four-week summer living and learning experiences in German language and culture for beginning through advanced 7-18 year olds, with scholarship opportunities available. Family programs are also available. Hundreds of kids from all 50 states take part each year in this exciting program that returns your students to the classroom enthused about learning German with you, and awakens kids not yet in your classroom to the many reasons to learn German.
Come join us for a week at Waldsee this summer – we can offer room and board, and a focused program to engage you in German. A sample program might look like this:
Montag: Arrival – Willkommen in Waldsee!
Dienstag: Best practice techniques – from activities giving learners courage to extended projects using authentic materials.
Mittwoch: German and the Environment – come and join the excitement of the Waldsee BioHaus, the only certified Passivhaus in North America, winner of the Minnesota Environmental Award, and an amazing living and learning environment.
Donnerstag: German and Music – not musical? You’ll be rockin’ to modern German music so fast you’ll just naturally carry your enthusiasm back to the classroom. Musically oriented? We’re the Platz to be!
Freitag: German and Arts or German and Technology – join our artists’ colony of Worpswede, or find out how to offer podcasts, radio shows, all sorts of internet activities – und alles auf deutsch!
During the week you can also freshen your German with native speakers at the Café; help us with Gesang or our Abendprogramme; or help our younger staff improve their own German teaching techniques. You are a valuable resource for us – let’s get together! Waldsee promises to be a volunteer experience like no other – we promise a mutually rewarding exchange.
If you are working on your own professional development plan, we can tailor the Waldsee experience to help you meet your goals and offer continuing education credits.
Waldsee this summer. We can then be in touch with more details. Wir würden uns freuen!
