For over 10 years, the Buffalo Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) has offered a “Sprachfest” to local German students and their teachers. The WNY Chapter of AATG recently revived this tradition.
Ken-Ton students and their German language teachers from Hoover Middle, Franklin Middle, Kenmore East, and Kenmore West joined students from the Sweethome Central School District to take part in German Immersion Day. During each of the activities, students were encouraged to speak, listen, and read German. Cultural activities and German food rounded out the day’s experiences. All students and teachers described the day as simply “wunderbar!”
The Sprachfest is funded in part by a $500 German government grant, distributed by the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG).
