University Experiences of Germany

University Experiences of Germany

On Thursday 3 February, the German Department were delighted to welcome father of Will and Emilie, Mr Carl Lumbard to speak to Third, Fourth and Fifth Year German pupils this week about his experiences during his year abroad in Germany while studying French and German at University.

A year abroad during a university course is always an enriching experience, and it can be life changing. Alongside his job as a teaching assistant in a German school, Mr Lumbard’s experiences included mastering the meticulous art around preparing the proper cup of German coffee,  learning to appreciate asparagus season, driving on the Autobahn, playing football for the local team, and watching football with Gastarbeiter from Yugoslavia and Turkey, and even negotiating the nerve-jangling journey to Berlin through then East Germany.

Many thanks to Mr Lumbard for sharing his insights and experiences.
