Language classes foster exchanges
Three students from France spent three weeks with host families in February and attended classes at Wausau West High School. In addition, one of the French teachers traveling with the students stayed with French teacher Kara Torkelson and spoke to several classes.
In March and April, students and teachers from a German partner school the König-Karlmann Gymnasium, will visit West for about three weeks. Nine West students spent a week in Altötting, Germany, last June. Their host students along with two teachers will be staying with host families here in Wausau for about three weeks.
During their visit, they will spend several days in Chicago, will tour the state Capitol, visit the House on the Rock, and discover all there is to know about Wausau and our German heritage. In addition, they will do presentations in classes at West, John Muir Middle School and several elementary schools, and will put on a "Bavarian Evening" for their host families before returning home.
The Wausau West/König-Karlmann Gymnasium partnership has been in existence since 1998, and this is the fifth complete student-to-student exchange.
