Meet our 2023–24 Language Associate (LA), Sarah Clark!


I’m Sarah and I am this year’s German Language Associate at Carleton!

I study and live in Bamberg, which is a small but very pretty town located in Upper Franconia (northern Bavaria). I’m studying to become a teacher and my main subjects are German and English.

Bamberg has a lot to offer—it is not only known for its many breweries, but also for its beautiful buildings and historical sights like its cathedral, for example.

Whilst I do study in Bamberg, I originally come from a small village located even further in the South of Germany: Bad Endorf is the town I grew up in and it’s surrounded by many beautiful lakes and is situated directly at the foot of the Bavarian Alps.

After school, I took some time off to work and travel – in recent years, I have visited a number of countries such as Italy, Poland, Greece, Sweden, England, Scotland, Turkey and many more.

However, this is my very first time visiting the US, so I’m very excited to be here!

Besides traveling, I also enjoy going for walks (a typical German activity, I know), learning new languages (with Turkish being the language that I am currently learning) and listening to music.

I really look forward to meeting you on campus and getting to know you during the course of the year… wir sehen uns!
