BGE at EHP

Posted by asecoli - August 21, 2012

When discussing the idea of a European municipal project on the connotations of words, contacts of the Europäisches Haus Pappenheim showed much interest in the concept of Basic Global English. It seems that among the “middle” and “elder” generation, English is much less known that the EHP had expected. Therefore, an additional preparatory phase has now been implemented in the project plan.

Linguistic Edutainment: Foreignish for Freshmen

Posted by asecoli - März 31, 2009

Always in search for new ways of disseminating linguistic knowledge, I tried out a new one last Thursday: linguistic edutainment. I combined lecturing, audience participation (through quizzes) and music for a performance „Ausländisch für Anfänger“ („Foreignish for Freshmen“) at the Volkshochschule Weißenburg. It seemed to have worked as shown by the report in the local newspaper here.
