East Speaks West, West Speaks East - sharing languages and culture
East Speaks West, West Speaks East (ESWWSE) in cooperation with the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and the Thüringer Institut für Lehrerfortbildung, Lehrerentwicklung und Medien ( The Ministry of Education, Science and Culture) of Thüringen aims to promote a culture and language exchange programs between schools of Thüringen in Germany and Asia.
During the visit to Germany, we intend to introduce the students to Weimar Classicism by helping them to acquaint themselves with the life and history of the great poets of this period; Goethe, Schiller, Wieland,Herder and other great writers who shaped the Weimarer Classic. A visit of the German students to Asia will help them gain knowledge and broaden their understanding of Asia, its language and culture, through a first hand experience aided by the exchange and encounter with Asian culture and language.
This project further aims to clearly attain the following goals:
1. Discovering culture through the language.
2. Promoting student exchange and visit among schools .
3. Teaching students the use and application of ICT webtools in language learning.
