The first online get-together, Say Hello to Germany, within the Language Tandem project took place this month, organized at Warsaw University of Technology (WUT). During the meeting, the students discovered exciting facts about the German universities, food, language, history, and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
The participants in this seminar, Say Hello to Germany, had an opportunity to work in break-out rooms on MS Teams, where they were they got to know one another, watch short films and discuss some questions together. At the end of the meeting, the students were quizzed about Germany to check how much they had learned. The best students won prizes, books in German to practice the language.
This event, organized last December the 20th, was led by Liv Jakbczyk, the DAAD-Lektor at Warsaw University of Technology, and co-organized by Dorota Chromińska, the proxy for language tandems at the WUT Foreign Language Centre, and Joanna Kret, the Language Tandem Coordinator. Thirty students from the seven ENHANCE universities took part in the meeting. They had the opportunity to expand their knowledge about Germany and integrate with people from the ENHANCE Tandem community.
Say Hello to Germany was the first informal get-together within the ENHANCE Tandem project. Soon, more such events will follow.
