6th February 2023 @ 12:45 - 13:30

In this MFL/German session, Dr Judith Kaup, a leading academic from the School of Literature and Languages at University of Surrey, will run an interactive talk for students on Youth Culture in Germany, examining creative ways young people use German.

In this session we will explore how young Germans engage with their language. You will learn about current expressions used among young people and will be briefly introduced to the poetry slam culture in Berlin.

This is not a lecture – you will have the opportunity to participate actively and experiment with German. Don’t worry, there will be tasks suitable for everyone, from no knowledge to good command of the language.

The session will develop thinking, skills and approaches to support students in their MFL/German studies and future aspirations.

Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.
