MW freshman accepts scholarship for summer travel and study in Germany

Posted on

David Lins (Chesterfield), a ninth-grade student in German 4, has been offered and accepted a scholarship for a study trip to Germany from the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG). First, David achieved the gold award on the National German Exam, which qualified him to apply for the study trip. David completed a dual-language interview in addition to a further language assessment and was then selected from students across the US to receive an all-expense-paid summer study trip to Germany! 

David’s teacher at MLWGS is Ms. Kristen Macklin. 

 The study trip includes round‐trip air transportation to Germany from New York or Newark, a homestay in a host family, and excursions to places of cultural and historical significance. David will be spending three weeks living in and around Berlin. The study trip, now in its 62nd year, is made possible through a grant from the Federal Republic of Germany.

 Wir gratulieren dir, David! We are so proud of you!
