Fulbright Scholar Dane tells us all about his experience in the English Teaching Assistant program.
Season 1, Episode 4. Fulbright Scholar Dane tells us all about his experience in the English Teaching Assistant program. Dane originally heard of Freiburg through friends in college who studied abroad via Academic Year Freiburg, and then again when he was living in Madison, Wisconsin, Freiburg's US sister city. When he applied to Fulbright, he hoped to be placed in the state of Baden-Württemburg, specifically in Freiburg.
As luck would have it, his application was accepted and he was off to the Black Forest for a year of assistant teaching in middle school English classes. He talks us through what the application process was like, what preparations Fulbright provides ETA scholars, and what the job is like now that he's here and settled.
