Help from the US:
We are blessed with help from America. Young American students who study at Humboldt University do some kind of placement at our school. For 24 hours a week they assist teachers and students in English classes. They do team-teaching, conversation with small groups of only 2 students during Silentium and give little lectures. This seems to be becoming a tradition … J
September 2018: We welcome Tammy from Seattle at John Lennon School. She will be assisting our English teachers for the whole of the school year. We are very delighted and hope everybody will be able to meet her soon (in class or outside).
Our last helper was Aidan Regan:
“My name is Aidan Regan and I am a 20 year old university student from America. I was raised in Boise, Idaho and now live in Tacoma, Washington where I study German and Religion at the University of Puget Sound. Last September I arrived in Berlin for a year of Deutsch als Fremdsprache courses at Humboldt University. I love the arts (especially music and theater), the outdoors, and writing. I’m interested in teaching as a possible career path and am excited for my time at the John Lennon Gymnasium!”
Our first helper was Luke Westawker:
Luke was especially good at English Debating and helped preparing debates and judging them. Besides doing English, he also gave a helping hand in other subjects.
