Tengku Muhammad Faris Petra Science Secondary School

There is nothing more rewarding than students who try very hard to overcome their shyness and reservations towards a language which sounds too foreign to them. Our Malaysian members did exactly that and gave it a try. It reminds me of my adult students in the past who really took a lot of time to give it a try in conversing with me in Tagalog the first time. This is a very good try and I hope that they would take the plunge and have the courage to produce the play of Aschenputtel (Cinderella). 

Schneewittchen und die sieben zwerge  - snow white  in german

European and Asian students teaching and learning from each other. Rediscovering the "wheel" of language learning: ASSIMILATION - listening, repetition and immersion. Then bringing this forward into the present thereby injecting ICT tools in discovering a method which is designed and fitted for today's learners. A reflection would take place during the assimilation whereby the learners would be able to discover cultural similarities and differences through the language. 

 To help you understand our project pedagogy, kindly watch the Youtube videos showing you a play of Snow White in German performed  by our project members from India. Take time to watch, listen and get to know our projects. 

My deepest thanks and appreciation to Mrs Geeta Rajan and Khomal Ghai, for all students who participated on stage  and back stage and to Sanchit Goyal for the tech support.

And here are the slides of the production:

Students From india speaking german

These are the recordings of our students from India, St Marks Girls School. The following recordings were made by Dimple and Tashleen.



 I would like to  congratulate both Dimple and Tashleen for this recording. The pronunciation is very good considering that they have just listened to the recording and record themselves. Once more, it has been proven that students could really learn a lot. It was very exciting to listen to them. It must be pointed out that these students were reading the script with all the pauses, stress and intonation which really come close. Of course, there are some pronunciation points which must be polished. But in no time, being a teacher of languages for a very long time, these two students are really very promising. As I have said, please try to find time to give your best in learning German because the potential is there. Our student members from Germany are on holidays so they can't furnish a comment at the moment. Sure enough, they would love to listen to you. They are always excited to listen to their recording being spoken by other student members.  Kindly finish the recording! We are very much willing here in Germany to sit one on one with you online. Let us Web tools work for us. They are all there for our taking!

 My warmest regards,

Mrs Wolff
