On October 6, several thousand US students will meet speakers with first-hand experience of German culture in virtual classroom sessions. Be part of this fun initiative and register here as a speaker or host school by August 16, 2021.
Created as a kick-off event for the Year of the German-American Friendship - Wunderbar Together 2018/19, Meet-a-German also took place as part of its grand finale. The video below shows many of the wonderful #MeetAGerman posts that teachers and speakers shared on social media in 2019.
To continiously mitigate the spread of COVID-19, in 2021 all Meet-a-German sessions take place online via video conferencing platforms. The “citizen ambassadors” organize fun and creative activities with the students online. Many speakers join directly from their German homes - notwithstanding the time difference!

Fulbright Germany is organizing Meet-a-German again in cooperation with the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) as part of Wunderbar Together. Wunderbar Together is a collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and implemented by the Goethe-Institut.
