  • Personal Narrative: Frau In The Classroom

    Although she learned German at a fairly young age, she picked up the Austrian dialect; so she had to retrain her brain and mouth to think and speak independently of what she already knew. It is one thing to know the language inside and out, but it is a completely different thing to teach it to high schoolers in a way that makes sense. I only got to spend one full academic year with Frau before she decided that her family took precedence over her career. She spent almost thirty years dedicated to…

    Eventually, with every experience we shared like touring Berlin, kayaking in Potsdam, and going to an amusement park in Soltau we became a little closer.

    Mach’s gut.” I nervously look to Alena and just said, “Nice day out isn’t it?” and prayed to all gods that everything would go well but apparently all gods were against me. She looked embarrassed for a moment and shyly muttered, “Entschuldigung, aber ich kann nur Deutsch gesprochen.” In a single instant I felt my heart drop into my stomach.
