Class:2015 / Fellow

Originally from Berlin, Germany I moved to Washington, DC with my husband in 2009. While I’m a huge fan of my home town, I also very much enjoy the things DC has to offer like meeting people from all around the world and a diverse culture that often can be enjoyed for free. Being surrounded by foreign languages and cultures sparked my interest in my own language and culture. While many people perceive German as a very hard language to learn, I often times see similarities especially to English. The GLN Teaching Fellowship for me is an opportunity to share my language and culture with others while becoming even more engaged with the DC community in all its diversity. As a teacher I will do my best to lower the barrier and make my language more accessible for those interested in learning it.
