From 26. June to 9. July 2016 as a recipient of the Goethe-Institut scholarship our principal, Magdalena, had the opportunity to participate in a two-week professional development program for teachers of German. The seminar, at the Goethe-Institut in Göttingen, dealt with the socio-cultural studies of Germany and how to integrate them into teaching German to young people (Landeskundevermittlung auf den Niveaustufen A2 – B1).
Twenty-five teachers from fifteen different countries broadened their knowledge of language and culture and skills in methodics and didactics through daily workshops that covered the following topics: how adolescent learn, intercultural and socio-cultural studies, and research projects about Landeskunde.
