Speak! Kids Welcomes Felicia Winograd
German instructor Felicia Winograd landed in Charlottesville just a few months ago from the snowy peaks of Aspen, Colorado. A native of Munich, Felicia has taught German to adults as well as children (at a Waldorf School) for many years. New to town, she quickly discovered the language +culture hub of Charlottesville – Speak! – and we are thrilled to announce her new role as our lead “German for Kids and Families” instructor! Felicia will also join Carol Del Vitto in developing our German program for adults. With the holidays fast approaching and many of our holiday camps at or approaching maximum numbers, I wasted no time in scheduling not just one, but two GERMAN CHRISTMAS WORKSHOPS with Felicia for different age groups. My 10 year-old daughter – a budding singer preparing for an audition for Mozart’s Magic Flute – was the first to sign up for the Sunday session. Here are the details:
Christmas in Germany: Language+Craft Workshop

Come and make traditional German tree ornaments and crafts, create fragrant, clove-spiked oranges and tangerines and explore the culture and music of Germany. While immersed in crafts learn the songs, rhymes and taste some delicious sweets. You will hear about the “Christkindlmarkets” and learn to understand and improve your German language skills. German is taught in an expressive and informal way that makes learning fun. Felicia is a native speaker from Munich and a former Waldorf School German teacher.
