    Professor Thierry Durand at Linfield College attended our Spring Workshops and won some free money to take share pastries with colleagues and do some collaborating in the process.  Here's what he had to say:

    "Le premier café de français de l’année c’est très bien passé, c’est dommage que tu n’ai pas pu venir !"

    American Academy of Arts & Science Commission on Language Learning

    In support of its recent report, America’s Languages: Investing in Language Education for the 21st Century, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences recently released a call-to-action signed by 37 individuals and over 150 organizations who urge greater support for languages in order to maintain and enhance American global leadership. The report recommends that the U.S. provide access to languages for all age groups, prepare more language teachers, promote public-private partnerships in language education, support heritage and indigenous language communities, and encourage international learning experiences. The American Academy will continue to collect endorsements for “Bridging America’s Language Gap” and will update the document periodically. For more information, view the call-to-action and The America’s Languages report. To join the effort, contact John Tessitore, American Academy senior program advisor, at

    This spring, four German high school teachers from the Eugene area got together to collaborate and exchange ideas for teaching German. We had a lot of fun sharing the newest Apps related to German language learning and the culture of the German speaking countries. Germany has welcomed many immigrants in the recent past, which sparked a wave of new materials for German as a second language. Many of these materials can be adapted to our classroom teaching, and they provide a great addition to our textbooks. The textbooks and the curricula we use were another topic we discussed. Many of us are working with old textbooks while eagerly waiting for ODE to approve new, 21 st century materials that will match today’s technology. We shared our experiences of using IPads and Chromebooks, along with Google Classroom. We want to thank the Center for Languages and International Collaboration at Pacific University for sponsoring this event. In the World Language departments at our schools we sometimes get lonely, as the only ones teaching German. Sharing materials that are specific to our language was very helpful and enriching.

    Ideas Exchange for Teachers of German in Eugene

    1. Media Apps for following German current news

    2. Ideas for teaching the topic of immigration: have students share their family stories before they discuss the topic Incorporating grammar structure of the Genitiv: die Familie meiner Mutter.

    3. Textbooks being used: Team Deutsch: Textbook; Deutsch Aktuell;

    4. App: Gothe Institut und ARD: Ankommen,

    5. Green Screen App to produce videos.
