Unternehmerisches Denken und Sprachliche Vielfalt – eine Brücke in die Zukunft
This is the title of an “Erasmus+project”, in which our school takes part together with four other schools. The EU subsidizes the project in order to realize a cost-effective participation for our schools and pupils. The project lasts from 01/09/2015 to 31/08/2018. There are six meetings between pupils and teachers at the different schools in these three years.
Our goal is to provide our pupils with a wealth of experiences in languages. In various contacts and activities, we train students in speaking a foreign language, which increases their self-confidence regarding foreign languages and cultures. We hope to encourage these young EU-citizens to apply for jobs outside their mother countries in future.
There are many opportunities to practice the usage of a foreign language in on-the- job situations. We decided to teach our students during the project meetings in mixed groups based on the Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)- principle. For each meeting every school contributes three CLIL-classes, on which the teachers from the other schools sit in to evaluate and correct them. In total, there will be 90 corrected CLIL-lessons at the end of the project.
In the link provided you can see our corrected lessons that you can use as ideas for your own classes. We hope to encourage other schools to try teaching CLIL.
Following the links to our partners, you can also have a look at their corrected lesson plans. You will see: it is not only fun to teach in a foreign language, it is also worth a try!
