The Goethe-Institut is expanding its project German for Hire, and they would like to encourage you to participate in what they believe presents a great opportunity to you and your students.
German for Hire invites native German students at colleges and universities here in the US to become “intercultural ambassadors.” Students visit middle and high schools as well as colleges and talk to students about their lives, hobbies and culture in Germany in order to enhance intercultural understanding, providing American students with a more authentic and modern side of Germany and Europe.
Would you and your students like to have the opportunity to meet a “real” German for whom Germany is more than beer, bratwurst and Oktoberfest? Invite one of our ambassadors to your class(es) and have him/her talk about a topic of your choice. The Goethe-Institut pays for travel, so all you have to do is “order” an ambassador. Here is how:
Go to the website http://www.goethe.de/germanforhire and locate the Goethe-Institut near you. Fill out the form, hit “send,” and we will get in touch with you soon afterwards.
