    Tenth-grader Kathrin from Albert-Schweitzer-Schule (school) in Nienburg/Germany is spending three months in Las Cruces within the framework of the Las Cruces-Nienburg Sister Cities Affiliation.  She arrived on August 5, 2014. She is hosted by a local family whose connections with our organization go back to its very beginnings. Kathrin is attending Centennial High School, Las Cruces’ newest high school, together with one of her host brothers, also a tenth-grader.  Her goals are improving her English language skills, making new friends and getting to know everyday culture as well as some interesting sites  of New Mexico.  Kathrin says:” Everything seems so big to me here: Centennial High School has so many more students from 9th through 12th, grade than my German academic high school from 5th through 12th grade. The pick-ups here look enormous; stores like Walmart seem gigantic.  The  people here are very friendly and open. I’m getting more and more used to understanding and speaking English all day long.”
