Stamford School - Beginners German Course (Copthill School)

Over the four week course students learn to say basic things in German. Each week a different aspect of German culture is dealt with especially in the run up to Christmas, Halloween etc.

Aims

Promoting German and showing language opportunities at SES. Students in Y5 and 6 in local primary schools as German is not offered in most primary school. Primary schools should offer foreign languages but in most cases this is restricted to French and/or Spanish.

 

Background

We took part in the outreach programme at SHS in 2012 and found that one session was too little to do anything meaningful. We therefore decided to offer a short course. It started in November 2013.

 

Resources

 Use of the language lab as the children enjoy it. IT have been very supportive in ensuring everything works properly.

 

Pupil Involvement

9 and 10 year olds.
