On the 29 September, all year 7 children learning German attended their first university lecture!
As part of their KinderUni project the Goethe-Institut organised a guest speaker for us from Bielefeld University. Frau Demirkaya from the Faculty of Linguistics and Literature taught the young students about 'How languages work'. They listened to sound bites in several languages, worked out grammar patterns, identified word order rules, looked at how other languages write and even learned some Turkish!
In the afternoon, year 6 classes at Ravenscote had the opportunity to attend their first (Kinder-) Uni lecture. The children thought it was really interesting and were very proud to feel like proper students!
A big Danke schön to the speaker and Frau Soylucicek from the Goethe-Institut for these interesting talks!
