Peer Tutor Spotlight
 
Jordan, German Tutor

I am double majoring in Business (Marketing) and Germanic Studies. I am from Wisconsin, I live on campus and have been studying German for about 9 years. I strengthened my German a lot by participating in an exchange in high school where we spent a lot of our time in Fulda, a town near Frankfurt, Germany. Study abroad caused me to speak German constantly and really grasp the language even more. Outside of German I am interested in Music and the Arts. I really look forward to sharing my tips on how to be a successful German speaker.

Italian Language and Culture
 
Le avventure di Cipollino

Children’s shows are a great way to introduce yourself to listening comprehension in another language, as the plots tend to be more straightforward than in adult shows. Le avventure di Cipollino is an animated children’s cartoon detailing the adventures of a little onion that can be found in segments on YouTube.
