IN PICTURES: July at the Goethe!
Summer is here and it hasn’t got any quieter at the Goethe, well, maybe a little but we’ve still had LOTS going on! Ready to hear what happened? Read on people, read on!
Introducing the NEW Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta Website!
So, we’ve been working on this one behind the scenes for a while now and finally it came to life for you guys too! On July 10, the new Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta website was live! We tried to design a website for you, our members, donors, students and supporters, something you can easily navigate! We want you to be able to find that class or event and register for it with great ease! We want things to be easily accessible and readable for you – and we’re still improving it! Watch out for new updates coming soon! If you haven’t checked it out yet, take a look: www.goethe.de/atlanta
European Studies Summit: A High School Leadership Camp
Another new addition in July was a summer camp! We teamed up with our colleagues at the Alliance Française d’Atlanta for the European Studies Summit: A High School Leadership Camp. Students spent the week learning about different European countries, focusing on the different languages and culture. They worked on 2 projects: a Model EU and a European news report and went on field trips to Piedmont Park, Bauerfiend USA, MODA and the radio station V-103. This year’s featured countries included: France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic and Hungary.
Southeast Homeschool Expo
Towards the end of the July, we spent the weekend at the Southeast Homeschool Expo, talking to children and parents about our new homeschool classes. It was great to meet so many new faces and introduce them to the Goethe Atlanta. Homeschool classes are now available with in-house, online distance learning at home and individual instruction available. If you know someone who’s homeschooled and wants to learn German, let them know!
3rd Annual Atlanta German Business and Education Summit
And we ended the month with the 3rd Annual Atlanta German Business and Education Summit. This event brings business and education leaders together to talk about how they can help each other when it comes to the workforce of the future. This year, the keynote speakers was Mr. Richard Woods, Georgia State School Superintendent, with presentations given by Ms. Nicole Heimann, GACC South and Mr. Patrick Wallace, Program Specialist for World Languages & Global Workforce Initiatives; Georgia Department of Education. Table discussions were also carried out which highlighted some great points and areas to work on.
And that was July! Another great month – if you stopped by, we enjoyed seeing you! If not, we hope to see you at the Goethe Atlanta again soon!
