Twenty host families opened their homes to students from Ludwigsburg, Germany to create the third exchange with Mora. Relationships that require overcoming a language gap are special, requiring active listening, curiosity and humility. Therefore, the two-week exchange in early October was filled with learning and laughter.  

At the Audubon Center of the North Woods, for example, American students taught the Germans how to play “Duck Duck Gray Duck.” Americans learned that Gray Wolves have returned to German forests. Together, students tried new things, such as boiling acorns to make tea. 

This June, a similar sized group of students from Mora schools will travel to visit Ludwigsburg to continue learning from each other (and likely laughing a little as well).
