Look East! A workshop for schools, 15 Sept
How can you introduce Russian and East European culture and language to your pupils? A workshop for schools.
Glasgow University, 9-12am Friday 15 September 2017
Relevant to teachers of 1+2 courses in primary schools and secondary school BGE, Modern Studies qualifications, and Languages for Life and Work qualifications.
Glasgow University Russian Department celebrates its 100th anniversary in September 2017. The department has developed in those 100 years, not least being joined by teachers of other East European languages and cultures – currently Polish, Czech and Hungarian. They would like to invite schools to discuss how to work together to ensure that pupils have an understanding of the rich cultures of that part of the world, situated between the more familiar countries of Western Europe and the Asian countries we are starting to learn more about.
As you prepare to celebrate European Day of Languages on 26 September don’t forget that Europe stretches as far as the Urals.
