Ursula Schoeneich, GermanSchoolcampus’ principal, points out that “Kids really like this Interpreter strip and love showing it off on their Boy Scout uniform.” Pleased she adds, “It’s so nice to see that it’s a cool thing now to be able to speak a foreign language, even if it’s just enough words to hold up a simple conversation.”
