Checkpoint Charlie Program

Students who have taken German 401 and German 401P or plan to take it, have the opportunity to apply to live with a German family and assist in an English class in a German elementary school for one month during the summer, normally from mid-June to mid-July. Since this program is sponsored by the Checkpoint Charlie Foundation, student volunteers are only required to pay for their flight to Germany and spending money. Room and board is paid for by the Foundation.

During the month in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany, students are required to work 20 hours/week in the elementary school assisting in English classes and observing and possibly assisting in other classes as well. The American students have the opportunity to share their expertise about the American culture and language, while experiencing the German language and culture in many different environments – elementary school, German family, and simply around town The weekends are open, but the host families often plan activities for their visiting American students.
