RWU Munich 2020 offers students the opportunity to visit Munich and the surrounding area during spring break. Students in both the professional schools and in SHAE will find the excursions and experiences directly linked and relevant to their studies in Bristol. Munich boasts several of the finest museums of German, classical art, industry and culture. Nearby are two major auto manufacturers, a WWII concentration camp, and a world leading soccer Team, Bayern-Munchen. The cities of Nuremberg, Salzburg are a short train ride away. During our visit we will visit all of the these places and sites.
The trip includes visits to the BMW car manufacturer and production factory, a visit to the WWII Nazi War Crimes Memoriam, 3 castles in Nuremberg and Salzburg, a salt mine, a medieval prison, Dachau's concentration camp, Neuschwanstein (the Disney World castle), and a soccer game.
The program includes learning goals for all levels of German speakers from beginning German to advancing speakers. Students' level of German or previous course (if any) will determine which track in the syllabus the students will follow, if above the elementary level. In general, beginning students will master basic phrases and approximately 100 words. Intermediate and advancing speakers double or triple this requirement. See the syllabus for details.
Students are not required to know any German prior to the trip. Basic level training will be provided to students during the semester before the spring break trip.
Upon returning from the RWU Munich program, students will feel comfortable traveling around southern Germany. They will have visited local establishments, restaurants, historical sites and hotels, and, they will have traveled on trains, buses, and subways as the Germans do. Students leave Culturally enriched, knowledgeable of Germany's history, and with a sense of confidence to visit again and explore more. The cost for all travel, fees, accommodations, breakfasts and most dinners is $1,485 (not including airfare).
