More people live in Germany than any other European country, it has the continent’s largest economy and German is the most widely spoken first language in the whole of Europe.
On Monday January 25th, join us at a special webinar to discover more about Germany, its links with a region of the UK and how businesses in the North East of England value it as a trading partner.
The session will run from 1330 – 1500 and is most suited to pupils in upper KS3, KS4 and KS5.
The session will be hosted by colleagues at British Council using Microsoft Teams Live to safeguard learners. Pupils can comment and ask questions using a moderated chat facility.
The event is brought to you by partners at Goethe Institut, Hon German Consul in Newcastle upon Tyne, International Newcastle, Durham County Council and from two of the region’s twinned cities, Gelsenkirchen and Tübingen.
