    Herzlich Willkommen! This is Dr. Lothe's (you can also call her Frau Lothe) and this will be her fifth year teaching German in Loudoun County.
    Dr. Lothe has been teaching German as a Foreign Language (Deutsch als Fremdsprache/DaF) for almost 21 years, mostly at universities, colleges, language agencies, and online. She has a double Master's in German Literature and Languages from the University of Pittsburgh and from University of Mumbai. In addition, she also received a "Diplom" from the Goethe-Institut in conjunction with the Maximillian Ludwig Universität in the German Language. In 2011 she earned my  Ph.D. from the University of South Florida in Second Language Acquisition/Instructional Technology. Dr. Lothe's areas of specialization include "Teaching German as a Foreign Language , Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Online/Distance Learning, and "Teaching Culture" among others.
    Dr. Lothe is teaching all levels of German this year.  All of the German classes will use a variety of materials in print as well as various online tools to build and improve upon each student's ability to listen, speak, read and write in German and explore the German culture.

    At Potomac Falls, we value building relationships, working hard, and making connections to ensure students are life, college, and career ready. Looking forward to a fun year of learning German! See schedule below: 
     This is Dr. Lothe's fourth year sponsoring the German  Club, and the German Honor Society. In June I had the pleasure and wonderful opportunity to lead thirteen of our students on an educational trip to Germany. 
     She lives in Ashburn with her husband, and their twelve year old daughter. Very recently, they welcomed a little Labradoodle into their home!
