ANGOLA - Mariell Mueller, from Berlin, Germany, made great friends during her exchange year at Lake Shore High School in 2005-2006, friends she has remained close to. These friendships brought her back recently to attend a wedding, but while here it was also important for her to visit her alma mater, Lake Shore High. During her visit back to the school, she shadowed German language teacher Fritz Schattauer and worked with the current German students.
In the German 4 and German 5 classes, she answered German questions about the culture and life in Germany today. Topics ranged from popular music and TV shows to the Turkish minority and politics. Students posed their questions in German to develop communication skills. German 3 classes were particularly fun for Mariell. Each class was working on Oktoberfest activities, so Mariell joined the teacher in teaching them a German dance.
