Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistants 

Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant, 2021-2022

Servus mitanand and hello everyone!

My name is Yasemin Schünemann and I am from the beautiful little town called Nördlingen in Bavaria. I am currently completing my Master of Education in German and English at the University of Stuttgart in Germany. I am excited to be here at SSU as a Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant in the German Program this academic year! As a Fulbright FLTA, I also serve the campus-community through public events, such as presentations during the International Education Week.

Since I love teaching German and learning about new cultures, I am looking forward to meeting you all! I will be hosting the Kaffeestunde on Tuesdays at noon in SIP where you can practice your German. Everyone is invited to join us in this informal German conversation hour. I will also present the German Movie Series every other Wednesday evening at 7:15 p.m. in 2020 Salazar. All films have English subtitles, and everybody is invited to our post-screening discussion. I am also supporting the SSU German Club which will make sure to bring the German language and culture to you by having lots of fun with different activities! For example, we will watch a German soccer game, play German board games, spend time together at the lakes, and much more. Besides these events, I offer office hours which are always open for everybody interested in German! You can always come to me or to our current PLFs (peer language facilitators) from Germany, Gamze and Lydia, to join us for a chat and learn more about the diversity of the German-speaking world!
