Language association looks at youth with concern

Language association looks at youth with concern

Friends" instead of "friends" – the german language association (VDS) is very strict – especially with words used by young people. "Language accompanies us our whole lives," said jorg bonisch of the association.

Many adolescents, however, could not express themselves adequately. They increasingly used english words or sometimes didn’t strike the right note with employers. "There’s something wrong," said the language expert.

From thursday on, according to his statements, the association wants to exchange information about the current developments at the language days in halle. Participants from azerbaijan, ghana and tunisia also came to the four-day meeting, said bonisch. This year’s motto is "language and education in changing times".

A year as a junior ambassador to the usa

a year as a junior ambassador to the usa

She likes the english language. She is interested in politics. She likes to get involved in society. Maxime haag will soon be able to combine all this: in august, the young woman from marktsteft will go to the u.S. For a year as a scholarship holder of the parliamentary sponsorship program (PPP) of the bundestag.

In 1983, the congress of the united states of america and the german parliament agreed on a two-way youth exchange program. The goal: to create a network of people-to-people connections between young people in the u.S. And germany to reinforce shared political values and learn about different ways of life in the other country. More than 35 years have passed since then, numerous politicians from various parties have been at the helm of the two countries, and yet the idea has lost none of its relevance.

Maxime haag became aware of the program last summer. She was visiting the senior class of the high school when a flyer was distributed there. The note aroused her curiosity, especially since she had already thought about it: "going abroad for a while would be cool."She has already been to taize for a few days and spent a week in england with her school. The fact that an offer from the bundestag fell into her hands was particularly fitting, because the 17-year-old likes to get involved with others, was a school spokeswoman, is politically active. She is a member of the local CSU association in marktsteft and is a member of the executive committee of the JU district association in kitzingen.

Teachers become “internet experts

Teachers become 'internet experts

In order for teachers to be able to explain the world of the internet to children, they must first understand it themselves. That’s why there was a training session at the rodachtal elementary school that showed 21 teachers how simple it can be in practice and how versatile it is in application.

“As the only school in the kronach district that cooperates with the “knowledge factory”, we are proud to be able to offer such a training course.” principal annegret hummrich-korm didn’t miss a beat that afternoon, tried out many things herself, looked over the shoulders of others with curiosity. Six individual modules were offered by instructor olivera haas, which could be worked through. But first, everyone played the role of “internet savvy” together and staged a role play with cardboard models. It was a very simple way to understand how the internet works.

That the melody of “hanschen klein could also be any swarm of bees, principal karin hader was not at all surprised. They had succeeded in developing the minicomputer “calliope” to program it so that it would execute the steps and actually play the song.
