I learned just how hard it is to communicate with others who do not speak the same language as you. I learned how to use plenty of hand motions while speaking in hopes that they would understand what I was trying to say to them. They are truly brilliant students with the ability to speak multiple languages. It was an absolute joy talking to them, answering their questions and being a part of their classes. I quickly realized that it is much different than American schools. The students do not have to line up or be escorted to class by a teacher. They are given the freedom and opportunity to play outside, walk around and have a short break before returning to their classrooms on their own.
The school was decorated with artwork, the students seem happy and the little school had the most wonderful atmosphere. Tomorrow we will visit a Waldorf school, which I am very excited about, and then we only have one day left at school. These days are flying by fast, only four days left! Everyday is a new adventure with amazing people at my side. These once strangers have become great friends and we are taking on Germany together, one day at a time!
