Celebrating 40 Years! A History of the German Language School of Connecticut (GSC)

The GSC is a private, non-profit language school with most of the professional teachers native German speakers and celebrates it's 40th year in Connecticut!

We desire to have our children learn this language, not only to remember their roots but also to be more competitive on the international scene when their professional lives start.”

— Dr. Ludanyi, Principal and President

STAMFORD, CT, US, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every Year is an Achievement at The German School of Connecticut

Students from every slice of life enjoy spending their Saturday mornings learning to speak German and become immersed in Germany’s culture.
The German Language School of Connecticut is a private, non-profit language school with most of the professional teachers native German speakers. There are two semesters, and the tuition is nominal. Parent volunteers help to keep costs down.
Many of the students have a German heritage. They may come from bilingual or multilingual homes where German is spoken. Yet a good number of students attend who have no ties to the homeland and no prior knowledge of the language. They enroll for the joy of learning a new language.
This year The German Language School is celebrating forty years of successfully educating students who may chose to attend a German University, enter the German world of international business, art and politics or just feel comfortable enough with the language to read off a menu or converse with others where German is spoken.

History of the German Language School

The month is October. The year is 1978. Couples waltz around the dance floor at The Pinewood Lake Club House. They’re enjoying dancing to the music of a big band just as much as they’d loved listening to a string quartet before dinner while sipping champagne. This is The Viennese Benefit Ball –a festive fundraiser for the newly opened German Language School. The cost of each ticket: $12.50.
Another event takes place the following June. This one, “A Little Bit of Bavaria,” is a German beer dance and sing-along. For entertainment, Schuhplattler dancers perform traditional Bavarian dances. These tickets cost $6.00 each.
The Vision of a German School

German- American parents living in Stamford, CT shared their concerns about how their children will learn to speak and write German and absorb the rich culture of their homeland. They shared their thoughts of opening a German school that would meet on Saturday mornings during the school year, thus becoming what is known as “a Saturday school.”
They were not alone with their anxiety about the importance of languages in an international world. It was underscored in April 1978 when President Jimmy Carter established a Commission on Foreign Languages and International Studies.
Opening a German Saturday school was an ambitious goal. The parents understood the need for serious financial backing, professional teachers and strong and dedicated leadership to establish a workable structure and create a challenging curriculum.

One member of this group was Frau Dr. Renate Ludanyi, a college professor of German at Western Connecticut University in Danbury, CT. As an educator, she knew that the ability to learn a new language is highest when children are young. As if she needed further convincing, her daughter kept telling her, “I want to learn German with a “real teacher.” The year was 1977—forty years ago.

Steering Committee is Formed

Members of the steering committee were Dr. Ludanyi, Mrs. Bronder, Mrs. Dautel, Mrs. Lust, Mrs. Sigrist, Mrs. Yeager and Mr. Klostemann. They established the guidelines: the school would provide professional instruction in the German language for children and adults, be in session for 30 Saturdays during the school year from mid-September to early June and have an enrollment of at least thirty students with a minimum of ten in each class. It would be affiliated with the German Language School Conference, Inc.
Before going further, this committee needed to know if there was enough interest. They sent a questionnaire to members of the Stamford community. The response was enthusiastic. “It’s an idea long overdue,” a German mother wrote. “Will you have classes for adults?” a Hungarian-German engineer asked.
The committee was further encouraged to learn the results from a recent study of 260 German companies in the United States. About half of those who responded replied that “they were hoping to hire German-speaking professionals in the near future.”

Dr. Ludanyi is quoted in the local newspaper as saying: “Because of a recent influx of German industries into Fairfield County, a new and urgent interest in the German language and culture has developed in this area.”

Building Is Found; Teachers are Hired

On May 22, 1978, a school with the name of The Independent German Language School of Southern Connecticut was incorporated. That summer was spent in finding a school willing to rent them space on Saturday mornings. It needed to be centrally located for the majority of families, accessible in all weather to the Merritt Parkway and CT Turnpike, have adequate parking and a pleasant atmosphere in which the children could work. A private K-8 school, Unquowa School, in Fairfield, CT was chosen.

College educated teachers who spoke fluent German needed to be hired. Most of the applicants were native-born Germans with advanced degrees.
Understandably, the organizers were most concerned about having a large enough enrollment. Not content to rely on solely word of mouth, they hung informational posters in libraries, supermarkets, and local businesses. They needn’t have worried.

Working on Your Self-Esteem is Key to Improve Your Sense of Well-Being | Study on American Women's Quality of Life Shows

quality of life and self esteem in American women

well being and self esteem in American women

what women would change about themselves

Improving self-esteem and having a positive effect in general well-being is very achievable, according to this quality of life study.

'Troubles' for women with positive self esteem are more diverse. Weight is considerably the most delicate issue for those with self-esteem issues, followed by anxiety and depression.”

— Holistics – Insight the Culture

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Quality of life is a complex topic and is treated in many spheres as a science in itself. Academics have studied it from different disciplinary approaches to help policy makers and marketers innovate and improve services, products and spaces to affect positively the quality of life of citizens.

One of the main insights about quality of life is that its understanding is composed by an objective, exogenous level (environmental) and by a subjective, endogenous (personal) level of perception about the environment. Which basically means that your perception about yourself, your life and your surroundings affects your quality of life in general. For example, people who live in the same house have been found to experience different perceptions about their quality of life based on their subjective appreciations.

This study dived into what American women are thinking, doing, what they eat, who they admire and what they associate with good quality of life. One of the most important concepts covered during the study is self-esteem. Here are a few findings that can bring light into ways to improve your notion of well-being:

What you can do

Walking is the activity that most American women relate to feeling good about themselves, followed by reading, working and spending time with their family. Walking is deeply related with dogs, being outdoors and doing exercise in general. Reading books in print and digitally also makes women perceive a better quality of life. Working is also high on the list and includes not only nine-to-fives but also entrepreneurship and volunteering in different social organizations and non-profits.

What you can get

Books, phones and computers are some of the most cherished items women refer to when asking about their quality of life. This of course has to do with access to information and nurturing the mind, as well as staying connected with friends, family and like-minded individuals and groups. Women find great quality of life in reading, which they can do with any of these preferred items.

A second set of things were associated directly to their quality of life and well-being that have to do with their outward experiencing of social life and how they are able to express themselves in social settings. One of the concepts used to refer to this kind of items was self-care. Some of these items are products for the hair and skin, clothes, shoes, makeup and jewelry. The importance of such items lies in their effect on identity, expression and confidence, as the surveyed women shared in this study.

Who and what to follow

Michelle Obama, Ellen Degeneres and Oprah are the most frequently admired public figures. The topics that were associated the most with good quality of life were in the order of positive thinking, self-help content and parenting tips. Also family values and home decor content were associated with general well-being.

Self-Esteem and Well-Being

When asked about their general well-being and quality of life on a scale of one to five, the average score was 3.67 and the median was 4, which amounted to a little over 38%. Twenty percent scored their well-being with a solid 5 while a bit over 2% scored a 1 and 7% a 2. That’s nearly 10% with a negative perception of their quality of life, in general, while 31% scored a 3. The remaining 59% have a positive outlook.

Interestingly, when asked to rate their self-esteem the average score was close but a little lower at 3.4. It can be said that it is relatively easier for women to rate their general quality of life and well-being slightly better than their self-esteem. Only 12% of the sample rated themselves as empowered, while most rated themselves as having a positive self-esteem and 27% as average. Nearly 20%, double the general quality of life rating, rated themselves having a low self-esteem.

Investing in self-esteem may improve the perception of quality of life

What is interesting about these findings is that amongst those women with higher self-esteem, the score for the general well-being goes above 4, while amongst the women with lower self-esteem their quality of life goes straight to the 2’s.

The key insight is to understand that everyone has the power to work on his or her self-esteem, and doing so involves acquiring relatively simple habits that might have a positive effect both in the self-esteem and in the holistic sense of well-being and quality of life.

Taking up walking and reading, increasing the time spent working, volunteering and with family, switching to health eating with a controlled dose of indulgence and investing time and resources in feeling more confident in social settings are bound to have a positive effect in the self-esteem and in the quality of life, as perceived and lived.

In a May, 2018 survey, Holistics International, an independent media research firm that focuses on Business Culture and Quality of Life, aimed to learn about how they understand and define their well-being in today's America. Sample Size: 521 complete responses (95% confidence level +-4% error).

Ken Sutiak Explains Why Recycling is Important

Ken Sutiak dedicates his life to making the world a better place and this is how you can help.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ken Sutiak loves to help create better situations for the world he finds himself in. Whether he is helping animals, his community, or the environment, Sutiak takes his responsibility seriously.

Starting off as a Human Resource Assistant at NJ Transit, Sutiak spent his free time with the local 4H Club. Living in Clifton, New Jersey, Sutiak didn’t have much time to himself. However, the time he did have was spent helping animals. It made him feel good to be able to do such a selfless act.

Sadly, when Ken Sutiak’s mother was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease Sutiak moved back to his hometown of Totowa, New Jersey. Even though he left behind a life he loved in Clifton, helping his mother was the most important thing to him.

However, even throughout taking care of his mother, Sutiak found the time to help others in his community.

Now, Ken Sutiak is an advocate for recycling, because it affects everything that Sutiak’s efforts work tirelessly to overcome.


For years, Sutiak has worked with The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Sutiak has worked his way up from writing letters that would garner the attention of the decision-makers and editors. Currently, he speaks with those decision makers, advocating for animal rights.

According to Endangered Species International, globally humans use more than 260 million tons of plastic each year. Unfortunately, a lot of that ends up in a landfill. Since plastic isn’t biodegradable, it fills up those waste sites, contributing to an ever-growing problem.

However, waste consuming our landfills isn’t the only thing that a lack of recycling makes dangerous. It is also killing animals.

The longer something sits in a landfill, the more of a possibility that it will be taken out of the landfill. Whether it is dumped or taken away by a force of nature, animals are getting into the plastic. Some are eating it, while others get stuck on it.

Fortunately, to stop the death toll of this horrific plastic plague, all people must do is recycle.

Community Involvement

Everyone wants to live in a place that is free of garbage and debris. No one wants to breathe in chemicals and greenhouse gases every time they take a breath.

However, by not recycling, people are destroying the communities they live in. Recycling Guide explains that besides the effects, not recycling is having on the present, we are extinguishing natural resources. No resources will remain, for future generations, eventually.

Besides working with the ASPCA, Ken Sutiak also spends his time helping to clean up communities.

Sutiak works with the youth during this endeavor, explaining the importance of recycling and encouraging them to make better choices. Sutiak believes that if he and the kids he works with lead by example, their actions will inspire others.

In summation, Ken Sutiak knows recycling is essential. He is an advocate for the animals, as well as the communities. Sutiak’s actions, especially through recycling, are fighting for the survival of the planet, both now and in the future.

Colethea Jenkins From Atlanta, Explains The Key Foods Everyone Should Include In Their Diet

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Most people have heard of so-called "superfoods", which are believed to be helpful for a variety of things. Weight loss, an improved immune system, better skin, better vision, and so on are all health goals that are supposed to be achieved through different kinds of superfoods. Colethea Jenkins, however, feels that it is more important that people know which foods to eat in order to be healthy overall.

The Healthiest Foods in the World

Organizations both here and in Western Europe have spent a lot of time researching the health benefits of different foods, something that Colethea Jenkins has been watching with interest. He is particularly concerned about fads surrounding crash diets, which have the potential to be dangerous. He is also concerned about the fact that, on average, 100 acres of pizza are consumed every day in this country alone. Clearly, there is a lack of balance in people’s diet that needs to be addressed.

Based on various pieces of research, Colethea Jenkins has been able to identify the healthiest foods on the planet, which should be included in all diets. They are:

1. Nuts, pulses, and grains

These foods are full of nutritional value and should, therefore, be consumed regularly. The most important ones are almonds, Brazil nuts, lentils, oatmeal, and wheat germ. Nuts, pulses, and grains contain a variety of important vitamins and minerals that support heart health and other bodily functions. Furthermore, they are perfect for snacks.

2. Vegetables, fruits, and berries

There are so many different vegetables, fruits, and berries to choose from that it is almost a crime not to add them to one’s diet. However, some are healthier than others, which is why Colethea Jenkins suggests that a healthy diet should include broccoli, apples, kale, avocados, leafy green vegetables, and sweet potatoes. Again, these foods are full of important minerals and vitamins to support various parts of overall health.

3. Fish, meat, and eggs

Fish, meat, and eggs provide people with the necessary protein. However, a lot of meats are not healthy and can cause significant health problems, with red meats being an example. According to Colethea Jenkins, a healthy diet should include oily fish, venison, chicken, salmon, and free range eggs. Not only do these provide the body with essential protein, but they also help with brain health, heart health, and overall health.

The Importance of Moderation and Balance

In order for people to be healthy, they should not just consume the above foods, they should also focus on moderation. Most people think about food mainly from a weight loss perspective. This makes sense, not just because we live in a society that is obsessed with physical appearance, but also because there is a clear link between weight and health. While most of us know that in order to maintain a healthy weight, we have to focus on both diet and exercise, few of us know that diet actually makes up 80% of weight gain or weight loss. This is why balance and moderation are so important.

For instance, sugars and fats, except omega 3 fats found in oily fish or avocado, are not healthy. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean that they have no place in a balanced diet. The occasional treat goes a long way towards helping people to sustain a healthy lifestyle overall. Colethea Jenkins has seen time and again that some people manage to become healthier and lose some pounds to achieve a healthy weight, only to lose it all because they suddenly decide to go on a binge. This is because, psychologically, when we deny ourselves something, we start to crave it more.

The Importance of Treats

Because of the above, Colethea Jenkins believes that treats are also an essential part of a healthy diet. This doesn't mean that someone should eat pizza every day or have a chocolate cake every day. What it means is that the occasional pizza is perfectly acceptable, and so with the occasional slice of cake. He recommends, however, that people drink a glass of water before having their treat, thereby making the stomach feel full faster. This will make it easier to resist over-eating.

The Value of Proper Hydration

Indeed, proper hydration is the final key element of being healthy. Water is abundantly available yet insufficiently consumed. Water helps our body to flush out the toxins we accumulate over the course of the day. It also keeps us hydrated, which is important for a person’s energy level, skin, hair, and other bodily functions. Last but not least, it is the one thing that you can never have too much of.
