Ephrata German Exchange Students Make Trip Of A Lifetime

(Shopping News Photo by Donald Reese)

A group of 25 Ephrata High School students, along with their German teachers Sally Wise and Amanda Nace, recently returned from a three-week student exchange program in Germany. Students stayed with host families and were immersed in the culture and language that provided memories of a lifetime. The students have been studying German for three to four years, and although they were nervous when they arrived, their uneasiness quickly disappeared after meeting their host families. The group visited Eberbach, Heidelberg, Rothenburg, as well as the castle Neuschwanstein in the Alps.

Ephrata and German sister city Eberbach have been coordinating student exchanges for many years, allowing students to explore and learn about other cultures. Each student came home with a broader understanding of the world and their place in it, and the real connections that were made will shape the students in a positive way.

The group is shown attending a Friends of Eberbach picnic to talk about their experiences.
