【News release: Department of German】
     A total of 38 teachers and students from two German sister schools of Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages: Landshut and Wadersloh senior high schools, visited Taiwan during their Easter holidays (April 13th to 25th, 2017) to have 13 days of visiting tour. During the visit, they had classes with students of Wenzao and stayed in host families to experience the local life in Taiwan.
     To help the German students experience the diverse cultures in Taiwan, the Department of German arranged for them to learn the Chinese language and participate in German classes with students of the Department of German. Therefore, both the Taiwanese and German students can teach and learn from each other. The German students were also provided cultural classes such as writing calligraphy, making dumplings, and learning the tea ceremony, to more deeply understand Taiwanese culture. In addition, the Department of German organized off-campus trips, taking the German teachers and students to visit Sizihwan Bay and Meinong in Kaohsiung and to the famous spots in northern Taiwan including the National Palace Museum and Taipei 101.
     Landshut and Wadersloh senior high schools and Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages were separately founded by the Catholic Franciscans and Ursulines. Therefore, during their visit in Taiwan, the German teachers and students visited the Kaohsiung convent of Ursulines, Sr. Fidelis Wang and Sr. Ellen Mary Mylod, who are Wenzao’s lifetime honorary professors, along with the third president of Wenzao, Sr. Angela Chen. 
   
     According to the coordinators of the students association of the Department of German, who were responsible for organizing this visit, the interaction with German senior high school students helped Taiwanese students to improve their German conversation ability and to experience the cultural difference of both sides. Pia Köhler, a student from Wadersloh, reported that she was impressed by Taiwanese people’s kindness and warmth; she will miss everything in Taiwan after going back to Germany, and hopes she will have the opportunity to study in Taiwan in the future. In the summer vacation of this year, teachers and students of the Department of German will also visit Landshut, so that the students can have diverse international learning experiences.
     The international exchange program “Far but Near” between the German Department of Wenzao and German senior high schools, which are located throughout the Germany, has been implemented for almost 10 years, since 2008. The exchange of teachers and students each year has been frequent and achieved excellent outcomes. In the future, the cooperation between both sides will be enhanced regarding Taiwanese students’ internship in Germany and German students’ learning of the Chinese language.
