Look at who is starting high school–at the Swiss School of Rome! The primary language is German and the default language is Italian. She studied German all summer and is at the B1 level. And now she really starts learning!
She just went on an overnight excursion with her class to a place with Etruscan sites and an archaeological museum. She had 24 hours of hanging out with high schoolers that are from all over Europe. What an intense, exciting experience!
