East Speaks West, West Speaks East - sharing languages and culture


East Speaks West, West Speaks East (ESWWSE) in cooperation with the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and Asia. This project focuses on introducing the Asian students to German language annd culture through the understanding of Weimar Classicism.


A group of seven students and two accompanying teachers from Delhi International Public School visited Salzmannschule Schnefpenthal as part of a student exchange program between these two schools from June 21, 2015 to July 3, 2015. It was a successful and very meaningful visit for both school from Asia and Europe.


The Indian students were able to immerse themselves by joining classes at the school during the first week of their stay and spent the afternoons visiting some major cities of Thüringen like Erfurt and Eisenach. A visit to the German Parliament ( Deutscher Bundestag) was made possible by the office of Mrs Antje Tillmann MdB, CDU/ CSU.


A chance to spend time with the family was given during the long weekend. The second week was appropriated in introducing Weimar Classicism to Indian and German students of Salzmannschule Schnefphental . This was offered and organized by Weimar Klassik Stiftung as part of their education program Cicerone+. Weimar Klassik Stiftung aims to impart culture to young people through understanding. The students were guided to several museums in Weimar and workshops were held, too. The week culminated during the last day with the with a theater performance performed by the students themselves presented in the historic rooms of the Wittumspalais. The actors wore costumes of the period.

A group of students and a teacher of Salzmannschule Schnefpenthal are scheduled to visit India in October this year. We wish them a wonderful and meaningful stay in India as guests of Delhi International Public School. This time, it would be the Germans immersing in the colorful and vibrant Indian culture.
