European Day of Languages

Posted by asecoli - September 26, 2008

September 26 is the European Day of Languages.

This was a motivation for me to up-date the list of web links and printed publications on EuroLinguistiX.

Yesterday I was interviewed on Basic Global English by a journalist from the regional newspaper “Nürnberger Nachrichten”. While listening to me, he put it correctly into a nutshell: the idea of BGE is practically “Intercultural Competence” taught in English. Yes—and that’s what makes it so different from traditional concepts of Teaching English as a Foreign Language. That’s why BGE can also open portals to other languages. Example: after their trip to Italy, many of our BGE kids in Goldkronach actually decided to participate in an optional course in Italian as well.

On Tuesday, we visited our former BGE class again and did an oral and written test with them. I’m currently evaluating the material. The first impression looks promising.
