Fliegerlied - So ein schöner Tag - Karneval Song

Tim Toupet - das Fliegerlied

Here's an example of a typical carnival song played at all the German Karnevalparties on Rosenmontag:

Tim Toupet, the singing hairdresser, with this absolute 'Ohrwurm'.

Can you resist the chorus? Heut' ist so ein schöner Tag! (Today is such a beautiful day!) Cheesy, or what?

Peter Fox: Alles Neu - Official Video

And here is Peter Fox from Berlin, winner of a German song contest, and with three songs in the charts at the moment.

This is his first big hit: Alles neu (all new).

A-Level French Work Experience

Some comments from the students:
The most challenging part of the trip for me was standing up in front of a class of 30 thirteen year olds and having to do a presentation on Hamlet in French. Having to answer the students questions meant you had to think and speak French quickly but also correctly.

As a student learning French it helped me enormously as it gave me the chance to meet lots of different French teenagers and gave me the confidence to speak to them. It allowed you to speak colloquial French to your partners and more authoritative French when leading classes.

One week doesn’t seem like a long time, but our French massively improved, as we were speaking it constantly with the students, the teachers and our host families.
