Schlumpftreffen II: Total Immersion Weekend New Jersey Style



ABSTRACT  The New Jersey Chapter of the AATG conducted its second Total Immersion Weekend for students of German for the purpose of providing these students with a total German environment. All activities, including hiking, singing, dancing, arts and crafts, and various sports sessions, were conducted in German. Every teacher from the fifteen participating high schools was allowed to bring only five students, and was involved not only in planning the weekend but also in conducting at least one workshop. Detailed evaluation forms filled out at the end of the purely-for-fun German weekend proved that everyone involved found the experience truly worthwhile and exciting.
