In July, Claire Hoffmann’21 participated in a German Summer Study Program trip to Bad Reichenhall, Germany through the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG). The language and cultural immersion program provides a three-week homestay and school experience. Claire attended classes at the local Gymnasium (high school) and lived with the family of her host sister with whom she spoke only German. She traveled with a group of twenty American students and one AATG teacher/chaperone.
In August, Claire was then selected as one of two national AATG German Summer Study Program Ambassadors for August 2019 to April 2020. She will volunteer as a contact for students and their parents who are interested in going to Germany with AATG in Summer 2020.
