Conventional wisdom has it that a person doesn’t really know a new
language or culture until she begins dreaming in that language. For
Faith Andrews ’13, who is studying in Germany this academic year, it
appears she’s well on her way.
“I’m shocked at how hard it is to think and write in English after
just two and half weeks of only hearing, speaking and thinking in
German,” she notes. “I’m often at a loss for the English meaning when
translating German texts or just writing simple e-mails home.”
Last May, Andrews, along with Gwyneth Van Son ’13 and Hillary Rosen ’13, garnered a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)
to study at the University of Bremen this year. The three students also
earned Dickinson the top spot in 2011 among colleges and universities
in the U.S. and Canada to receive the award.
Similar to the U.S. Fulbright program, the DAAD is a German national
agency that offers fellowships to undergraduate and graduate students,
faculty and researchers to study or conduct research in Germany.
