Dawson College welcomes students and teachers from Rotteck Gymnasium in Freiburg, Germany
On Thursday, October 13th, 2016, Arts, Literature and Communication (ALC) welcomed a group of 17 exchange students from Freiburg, Germany. This German language exchange brings together students from Dawson, Vanier and Collège Ahuntsic in Quebec and students from the Rotteck and Angell Gymnasiums in Freiburg, Germany. The German students are currently participating in a homestay exchange with their counterparts in Canada and will join in classroom activities at both Dawson and Ahuntsic. They will also have the opportunity to visit and learn about Montreal, Quebec City and Mont Tremblant.
Students from Dawson and Ahuntsic will travel to Freiburg, Germany to participate in an immersive German language exchange next May 2017, where they will rejoin their homestay guests and build on relationships forged here in Montreal.
This language exchange was originally spearheaded by Collège Ahuntsic and has had an increasing number of participants from Dawson College. Ahuntsic will continue to participate in the exchange however the ALC program and the Office of International Development will establish a formal partnership between Dawson College and the Rotteck Gymnasium in Freiburg to ensure that future Dawson students can benefit from this excellent travel and learning opportunity!
