Participants will learn linguistic, intercultural and methodological skills. Throughout the course the teachers will reflect on their progress and abilities with the view of making a significant contribution to curricular development in their schools.

Teachers who attended the pilot course were convinced:

“Content of course was relevant to what would be taught in Primary Schools. I will be able to use/teach German in my class – learned some great lesson ideas.”

“The course was engaging, fun and very informative. – An excellent course that should be provided for more teachers. – I will be introducing German as a 3rd language with my P6/P7 next year. I feel confident to do so.”

The course kicks off with an event on Saturday, 17 January 2015 between 10:00 - 14:00 at Juniper Green Primary in Edinburgh.  Follow up sessions will take place as follows:

  • Thursday, 22 and 29 January and 5 and 12 February from 16:15 – 18:00
