Deutsch sprechen macht SpaB
Deutsch sprechen macht Spaß (new)
SMAX Mondays 1400-1600 fortnightly from 1st Oct
Tutor/Convener: Daisy Bendiner
The main intention of this group is to get people to speak German, without worrying about sentence structure, grammar or lack of certain vocabulary. This will of course be tailored for people attending and their knowledge of the language. We might even have two different foci: a) for fluent speakers who just want to talk and practice German b) what I call tourist German, to help people on holiday getting around. There will be an agreed topic for each session (after discussion with the group).
These could include:
introducing oneself holiday plans,
a German film or book, etc
The main aim is FUN without pressure.
Daisy Bendiner is a retired teacher and head teacher who lived and worked in London. German was her first language as her early years were spent in Germany. While teaching in London, she taught Tourist German at various adult evening classes attached to Evening Institutes in North London, for nearly twenty years. She developed a friendly and encouraging approach to learning with fun elements, as well as celebrating German festivals as part of her teaching. Everybody always enjoyed her classes and wondered what surprise she would come up with.
