Learners off to Germany

Not only will these children improve their German language skills, they also get a chance to experience a foreign culture.

03 December 2018 | Education

Six local learners are heading off to Germany as part of an exchange programme to improve their language skills while getting to know German culture.

Last week the AGDS (an Association supporting German School Societies in Namibia) and the German ambassador to Namibia, Christian Schlaga, met with students from different schools who are participating in the project.

This year's exchange was financially supported by the embassy with almost N$24 000.

At the event, Schlaga commended the young people for heading to a new country and environment, encouraging them to open their eyes and minds during this adventure.

The AGDS, together with the Association for German Cultural Relations Abroad, has been organising 8 to 12 week stays for Namibian youths during the Namibian summer break in Germany for many years.

The six learners will be accommodated by German host families, visit the schools of their partner children and thus get to know daily German life.

They will also convey Namibian culture and lifestyle to their German friends. In return, the host children from Germany will spend 6 to 8 weeks in Namibia during their summer holidays to also get to know the people and the country.
