Notes from our current international students...
We are five international students that have come to America to visit the 10th grade of Kimberton Waldorf School. We came here to improve our English and learn about the American culture. We have had a wonderful experience and made a lot of friends. We want to thank Kimberton Waldorf School for such a cool experience and all the support they gave us as international students.
My name is Johann and I’m from Germany. I live in Freiburg in the very south of Germany. I was very excited to come here. I am so glad to be here, because it is such a nice experience for me. Until now I learned so much and I saw many new things. America is very different from Germany, but I like it. I am so happy that I came to America, because I met a lot of new friends and a really nice family. I hope I will see all these people in my life again. I recommend to every student to go on an exchange, because you learn so much for your life. And it is so good to speak English, because you need it everywhere.
I’m from Mexico and I’ve been in a Waldorf school all my life. Since I was in 5th grade I dreamt to go to another country. So when I knew about the opportunity to come here I got very excited. Here I’ve learned so many things and I’m so thankful for all the American experience. I have met so many friends and new people and I’m sure we will see each other again and I will remember KWS as my home and all the people here as my family. I recommend this school as a very good opportunity to improve your English and learn about a different culture.
I am from Witten in Germany. I always wanted to go to school in America. So I decided to go in 10th grade. I was really excited to come here and experience the Waldorf school in America. I am glad that I had the opportunity to come here, to improve my English, meet new people, and make friends from the other end of the world. I want to thank everybody who supported me here and especially my family, that they hosted me and provided me with a wonderful experience.
I am a German international student that came in the beginning of 10th grade, and I am staying the whole year. I came to this school because my dad came here when he was in 11th grade. I am very glad that he made this happen for me. I also want to thank Mrs. Burgess, the German teacher and manager for the international and exchange students at this school, who found my nice host family for me. All the people that I met here have been really nice to me and helped me to find my way into Waldorf education, especially Anna and Simeon who really helped me by explaining words to me in the beginning. I really recommend this school for everyone who wants to do an exchange program. I really hope I can visit this class again during a break.
