The free course materials ‘Deutsch mit Felix und Franzi’ are proving very popular with primary children and their teachers. The cute hand puppets have even made it onto children’s Christmas wish lists! As teachers are becoming more familiar with the materials, they are discovering the benefits of the detailed lesson plans, songs, videos, whiteboard applications and wide range of cultural information provided.
Visits to North Lanarkshire schools by a German specialist with the play rug, ‘Map of Germany’, were well received. The children took this fantastic opportunity to enhance their geographical and cultural knowledge of Europe and Germany. Unfortunately, one child’s belief that Neverland is one of Germany’s nine neighbouring countries had to be dispelled!

The German Outdoors programme is continuing to enjoy great popularity. The workshop is travelling around primary schools in all weathers and the children return to their classrooms fresh-faced and with renewed motivation to learn the German language.
