This project showcases PDLS Bagenalstown’s Virtual Exchanges with schools in Cuxhaven and Kassel, Germany.
The initiative grew out of the desire to link up with students in German secondary schools and engage with language and culture in a fun way. The aim was that each student would have a partner in the partner school and would initially connect with him/her through handwritten letters, sent directly to the link teacher. From there, it was hoped that the connection would grow and that the next step; sharing videos, would help to build familiarity and confidence, eventually leading to live ‘meet-ups’ during lessons.
