The Network of English-Speaking Women

was founded in 1993 with the goal of providing a forum for communication and exchange between English-speaking women in and around Freiburg, Germany. By putting women in contact with one another and encouraging the exchange of information and experience – both personal and professional – the Network offers fun and informative evenings in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. 

Our next Meeting: Friday, February 23rd, at 7:30 pm

American CBYX Student Opens Up About Life in Germany!

Since 1983 the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (PPP/CBYX) has been affording American and German students the privilege of spending a year in Germany and America, respectively, living with host families. Immersed in a new environment, students have the opportunity to learn a new language, experience a different culture, education system and, occasionally, valuable work experience.

Duncan Cummins has been working as a local area representative and counsellor for this program, since 1993, placing 18-year-old American vocational high school graduates with German host families, in German high schools and internships.

American CBYX student Jessica Garcia-Ramirez will give a personal, vivid, illustrated account of how and when she decided to apply for this program. She will share her experiences thus far with orientation, living with a host family, visiting a German high school, interning in a Kindergarten and an NGO, as well as grappling with the ‘’terrible German language’’!
