WORT: Intercultural tandem with senior students (offer for English-speaking students)
16 October 2023, 09:45 - 11:30, Philipp-Melanchthon-Gymnasium, Geschwister-Scholl-Straße 1 und 10, 98574 Schmalkalden
This offer is aimed at all English-speaking students in Schmalkalden who would like to get in touch with German high-school students to practice their German and have some fun interactions with locals! The high-school students are excited about meeting Spanish speaking people in their classroom. If you speak Spanish, you are warmly invited to join two hours of Spanish class (for the address, see below)!
Final-year high-school students are eager to meet English speakers from all over the world and get in contact with you in their classroom! We will play interactive games like speed dating, share our intercultural experiences and maybe some tandem friendships will develop. So if you want to get in touch with young locals, this is the occasion that you shouldn’t miss! Sign up with a brief message to Marita Peter for better planning: m.peter(at)hs-sm.de. The more the merrier!
The WORT project, supported by the Free State of Thuringia and the European Social Fund Plus, has been officially approved until 30 September 2025. WORT addresses challenges such as: How can we counter the regional shortage of skilled workers by integrating international graduates of Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences into the labour market? How can we create a welcoming culture so that diversity is lived and welcomed in the working world and in everyday life?
