At Waldsee there is a lot of singing. We believe that singing German songs can help our villagers in many ways. They can mimic the counselors who sit among them, they can repeat words to practice pronunciation and they can recall songs to help them negotiate specific grammar points. At the Gesang for the 2 week villagers there is also a soap-opera-like story that introduces them to the question of the day before they are expected to produce any new language in their learning groups.
