E15 Oktoberfest Wrapup, Bibliothek, Mauerfall, and Events

In this episode, Claudia, Katrin, & Michael revisit the St. Paul Oktoberfest, share some of the fun and experiences we had, and marvel yet again how amazing these two days really were. Thanks again to Paulaner Bier and all the volunteers who made the SPOK even possible ~ Thank You!!

Katrin dives into the GAI Library and we talk a bit about the European Reference Frame, which defines the way we teach German at the GAI.

Oktober is a month of significance in Germany, and this year even moreso than in previous years. Germany celebrates the 30 year anniversary of the Mauerfall. Katrin and Claudia reminisce about their memories, and the reasonably neutral Austrian, Michael, weighs in as well. It's the memories of teenagers. 

Lastly, Claudia takes you through the upcoming events at the GAI, too.
