I had such an international school experience today...this just doesn't happen in other situations (at least in my reality).
I was a participant in a meeting with a parent today where there was a chain of communication I've never before experienced. It went like this...
Turkish Father---Turkish/German Interpreter----German Speaking Teacher---Me
I've had many parent meetings where there was an interpreter involved, but never one with the intermediary step.
It was kind of cool. Knowing we were all working for the good of the kid regardless of the language spoken. Neat.
