Germany Exchange

Welcome to the International Education...Travel with us via the web blog.  Moraine Park Technical college students will be leaving for Germany this weekend.  Travel with us via the web to learn about their experience. 

The Germany exchange has continued for a few years now. While a group from Moraine Park travels to Germany in the spring (usually May), the exchange is reciprocated in the fall when the German group travels to Wisconsin. The Culinary Arts program has supported this exchange for the last several years, with James Simmers and Tom Endejan alternately leading the group. James is serving as the travel guide this year for 10 culinary students, and the group plans to spend a week in Darmstadt, where they are paired with host families for their stay. After that, their travels lead them to widely renowned culinary destinations: Nice, France, and Genoa, Italy. Departing Sunday, they will return June 6. This exchange allows the culinary students to experience international cuisine and gain first-hand knowledge of a variety of European flavors, spices and influences. While the students have this exposure to international cuisine, the true value comes in the relationships sustained between these two programs.

Guten Tag,
Caron Daugherty
