The GAVE program is divided into topics that all follow the same blueprint, or ‘Fahrplan,’ as we say in German. Each packet focuses on one student-centered topic. Starting with introductory activities and culminating in interesting exchange projects, your students will have fun while learning more about the German language and culture as they interact with their German counterparts.
