Behind the Scenes: Meet Phyllis

In March, SCOLA traveled to Germany for our Country of the Month. We explored the German beer culture, tasted apfel kuchen, and discovered new German vocabulary. Some of youPortraitaufnahmen für gewerbliche Zwecke may be wondering who led us on our German adventure…

Phyllis is a SCOLA provider in Germany, but as you can guess by her name she is not German. She is from the United States. In fact, her birthplace is less than an hour drive from SCOLA headquarters in McClelland, Iowa. She has lived in Germany for more than 20 years and began her association with SCOLA years ago by arranging German TV programming. When she retired about two years ago, she began providing SCOLA with videos and photos. She especially likes making the videos because it gives her the opportunity to meet new and interesting people.

Along with the Country of the Month, Phyllis has also been sending in some interesting material for SCOLA‘s new service, Savoir-Vivre! Travel the streets of Germany and other foreign lands as you discover other cultures and experience new lifestyles. Access Savoir-Vivre for free at www.scola.org!

Behind the Scenes: Meet Franciszek

franek_matysikFebruary was spent traveling around Poland for our Country of the Month. Our Polish provider Franciszek shared with us traditional Polish food, let us experience the cold winter weather in his country, and much more!

Franciszek’s adventure started with SCOLA a few years ago when he was asked about programming in his language. With SCOLA he found that the programs broadcast in his country were of interest to viewers around the world.

Over the years, cooperation between Poland and SCOLA have grown with Franciszek sending in more and more material. He appreciates the work he does with SCOLA and all the employees. He enjoys his partnership with SCOLA that allows him to share Polish programming with people around the world.
