German-American Day @McDaniel College
Tuesday, October 13, 2009

The Department of Foreign Languages at McDaniel College invites you, your students, and anyone who is interested to attend the this year's German-American Day. 2009 is a year of many anniversaries and celebrations. It is the 15th anniversary of GAD at McDaniel College. In German history is has been 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, 40 years after the end of the Berlin Blockade, and 60 years after the establishment of the Federal Republic of Germany. This year's theme of GAD is: "A World Without Walls: Berlin 1989-2009" Many workshops on various aspects of life and culture of German-speaking countries will be offered by McDaniel College professors and advanced German students, professors from other colleges, high school teachers, and other professionals from the community, the German, Austrian and Swiss embassies.

This year, Uwe Kind, developer of SingLing, a language learning technique based on familiar tunes, and creator of LingoTech and rap songs such as "Das Auto is kaputt," will offer a lively concert with many new songs, which are used by teachers and students around the globe as a fun and effective way to learn conversational German.
