Antolin macht nicht nur Kindern Spass!

Oktober 2013

Wussten Sie schon, dass man über die Ferien und auch die Sommermonate deutsche Bücher von der GSA Bibliothek ausleihen kann? Es gab fleissige Leseratten, die an unserem Sommerlesewettbewerb mit Erfolg teilgenommen haben. Schaun Sie doch mal auf unser Foto. Liebe Kinder, herzlichen Glückwunsch an Euch alle!

Aber Antolin ist nicht nur für junge LeserInnen. Janice Caterino, jetzt Schülerin bei Angelika Clune in der Erwachsenenklasse, hat in den vergangenen 12 Monaten 35 deutsche Bücher gelesen und 1400 Punkte bei Antolin erreicht! Einfach toll! Punkten Sie doch auch mit!

Euer Antolin

German School of Atlanta Reaches Milestone: 30 Years of Connecting Cultures

German School of Atlanta Reaches Milestone: 30 Years of Connecting Cultures

(ATLANTA, GA, USA, September, 2013) German School of Atlanta (GSA) The German School of Atlanta (www.germanschoolatlanta.com) will mark its 30th anniversary this fall with the date of incorporation being December 5th, 1983.  Since 1983 the GSA has been dedicated to the students’ appreciation and awareness of German culture.

In honor of the occasion, an Immersion Day will be held on November 2, 2013 at the current home of GSA: East Cobb Middle School, 380 Holt Road, Marietta, GA 30067.  Members of the public are invited to learn more about the school in a variety of ways. The school has also invited teachers who teach German in the Metro Atlanta area to a workshop as well as students from local Middle and High schools. The event starts at 9:30 am and wraps up around 2:30pm to the tunes of Norbert Fuhrmann and his German American Band.

“At the GSA, students from pre-school age through adults have the opportunity to develop their German language skills and cultural understanding in a friendly, enjoyable atmosphere”, says Gaby Beyer, president of the school.  GSA strives to have just the right class for every student in terms of competence level, language environment and age. “In addition we offer AP prep, the full AATG and Sprachdiplom testing program and the possibility to obtain Carnegie credits” says Beyer.

To expand the existing program, the team at the GSA has designed its first online course which is available to anybody who would like to learn German at their own pace and with the assistance of a certified online instructor. In addition, plans are under way to open up a satellite campus in Peachtree City in January 2014.

The GSA is a cornerstone of the German community and enjoys strong support from individuals, institutions, companies and governments both locally and in Germany. Many students have successfully graduated with the Sprachdiplom and are now studying or working in Germany or for German companies in the US.

Beginning with 45 students in 1983, the GSA has grown to 300 students this year who are being taught by a very dedicated team of teachers.  School is in session for 30 Saturdays a year at East Cobb Middle School in Marietta from 9:30 a.m. until noon.
