Bundesliga total!

The Goethe Institut in San Fransisco sponsors a contest each year on the topic of the German National Soccer League, the Bundesliga. Students must watch a soccer game clip each month and answer listening comprehension questions and also make predictions for the series of Bundesliga games occurring on the following weekend. Last year was our first participating, and we may have landed in last place in the Southeast Region (due to our predictions, not our listening comprehension!). But this year we finished in the top 5 in the Southeast Region, which qualified us for the "Champions League" play. We finished in 4th place overall nationally, and were awarded the lovely Bayern-München tricot that Christian is modeling in the photo below. We are excited to compete again next year!
