Wednesday 27 July saw another very successful instalment of our annual German Quiz Night at University of Auckland. Over 35 secondary and tertiary students and their teachers joined UoA German Studies in the Arts 1 Common Room for ten rounds of tricky questions about German and the German speaking area.
Having prepared the quiz together with new lecturer Dr Nicole Perry, UoA students of German Rebecca Reilly and Adam Koifman moderated the quiz with grace and aplomb, managing to mark the questions in record time later.
School students made use of their chance to explore German at uni, asking both the uni students and the lecturers many questions about study options. At UoA, we look forward to seeing many of them and perhaps even more during our "explore German at UoA" weeks 26 Sept – 7 Oct this year.
The UoA German Quiz Night 2016 was made possible through a project grant from the DAAD, the German Academic Exchange Service. Anna Bauer
