International Service is an extra curricular activity primarily designed to foster integration of exchange students from all over the world who come to Salem for a certain period of time. That is why the service is open to all English speaking regular Salem students and the exchange students.
The group meets once a week, usually on Monday afternoon at 4 pm and either welcomes new exchange students, helping them to find their way in Salem, to choose the sports they like and explaining school rules.
We also do sports together, since that is a good way to integrate into a new school, or watch some English movies together. In summer we go for a swim to the nearby lake, discover the Lake Constance area by bike or take the train to one of the cities nearby like Friedrichshafen or Constance. On weekends we try to organize regular trips to regional sport highlights like Bundesliga soccer in Stuttgart or Freiburg.
International service is an option for you, if you:
- like to meet different people
- speak English well
- like to help other students
