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, a special webinar was arranged 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. A recording of the webinar is available here
The session was most suited to pupils in upper KS3, KS4 and KS5.
The event was 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.
A special teachers’ information pack outlining wonderful opportunities was provided to all schools which attended.
With support from the German Embassy and UK-German Connection.
