Alex Lambrow ’10

I am a 2010 graduate of the COLT program at Dartmouth, and received a Fulbright grant to spend the 2010-11 academic year teaching English and studying in Germany. I am currently living in Dresden, where I work in a secondary school and pursue courses in history and literature at the local Technische Universität. In the following years, I plan to return to the United States, to earn a Ph.D. in German Studies. Without the preparation afforded me by the COLT program at Dartmouth, I would very much be lost in Germany this year. I depend on the German language skills I acquired at Dartmouth everyday to teach and study, and the ability to think critically (sometimes with the help of a healthy dose of theory) and to write clearly have made me a significantly better teacher, student - and according to my job description as a Fulbrighter - "ambassador to the world."
