Twin Cities German Immersion School

Welcoming German exchange students

For the first time since 2019, TCGIS is welcoming 37 students and their teachers from schools in northern Germany, near the city of Münster.

For two weeks a well-planned Capstone Exchange program (with school projects and cultural highlights) fosters friendships between German and American students and their families.

Next spring, TCGIS eighth graders will visit their exchange peers in Germany and travel to Berlin. They will experience the German language through friendship, culture and daily life.
