CATA Students Skype with CATA Student in Germany
On October 7, German II students video-chatted with a classmate who is currently doing the Congress Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) program to spend a year in Germany! Cameron Dion explained to us what it is like to get a taste of real German language and culture. I interviewed Paula Das, a classmate, to answer some questions:
-What differences did you witness in your friend after she started adapting German culture? She had a slight German accent when she talked and her German drastically improved.
-Does the program look like something you would be interested in? Why/why not? Yes, because it seems like a great learning experience both for German and life in general. It teaches you how to adapt faster and improves your language skills.
This program is a very interesting opportunity. Witnessing it second hand from a classmate inspired some to apply for the CBYX program. We are anxiously awaiting Cameron’s return to discuss more about the day-to-day life of a German student.
