Was kann man während der Quarantäne zu Hause tun?

“Our final project is a video we have uploaded on Youtube. It is slightly different from our original plan because our circumstances have changed. This video serves as an insight of what you can do when you have to stay at home due to unforeseen circumstances. We had a lot of fun coming up with ideas to keep ourselves entertained and we hope our ideas can help you beat out the boredom while you stay at home for Spring break too!”

Welche Sprache spreche ich? [“What language am I speaking?”]

“Our project is a children’s story, presented in three different formats: in prose, as a poem, and a newspaper article. The story is about two young children, one in the USA and one in Germany, who wake up one day speaking the language of the other. This causes grave problems and a wizard is needed (on a hidden island in the Atlantic) to restore their speech. We chose a light-hearted theme to show that writing can be fun and not something to be dreaded.”

-- by Marty Kaliski, Ella Hermann, Lisa Bertholdt
