Summer Study Program Testimonials
Learn what students are saying about the AATG Summer Study Program!

"Hearing German spoken everywhere forced me to have an ear for what was going on, and with more exposure I only got better. It also changed my world view. I don’t drive places unnecessarily, and I don’t use materials wastefully... I took on a bit of German culture, and it mixed with American culture in me."
-Wesley Imig, Bonn, second from left
"Through my host family, I was able to get a glimpse into the German lifestyle. On our weekends together, they took me to a fortress in Salzburg, an ice cave, a water park near Munich, and on many gorgeous hikes. On my trip, I was able to learn about German history and Bavarian culture in the classroom at Karlsgymnasium and then experience it on the planned excursions with the American students.

-Claire Hoffman, Bad Reichenhall

"The lifestyle of my host family has impacted my own lifestyle since returning to the U.S. For example, I have become more environmentally conscious of my actions after seeing that my host family paid more attention to green practices. Generally speaking, my time in Germany has given me inspiration for how I can help improve my own community, as I thought that Germany had many great environmental practices." -Jeffrey Lin, Bonn, far right

"Although I have always been outgoing, this trip helped to refine it. This is no place to be shy or introverted! Being able to talk and meet people is the single most important thing and also one of the most fun experiences. Even if I was only able to talk for a few minutes I always learned something new."

"Living for three weeks with another family opened my mind to a different culture's

customs and ways of life. I became more open to trying new things and adapting to different circumstances.


-Sofiya Cole, Gera

"The person I left home as was certainly not one who left Germany three weeks later. The German skills I learned and the relationships I made with people an ocean away are invaluable, and my hope is that many more German students can experience that as well."

-Ann Stettler, Leipzig
