A német nyelvvel a hatékony tanulásért és tanításért
Start date: 01 Jul 2016, End date: 30 Jun 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our institution is a German nationality school. The children attending this primary school have few opportunities to hear and use the German nationality language at home, thus they acquire the language here. It is mainly the school that provides them with the opportunity to practice writing, reading and oral communication in the national language. As a catholic school we have annual masses when the texts of the mass and the traditional church songs of Budaörs are sung in German, with the active participation of our pupils.The aims of our German nationality education are to develop our pupils’ foreign language competencies and to get them acquainted with the culture and customs of the German nationality. Within the scope of our foreign language teaching programme each class has 6 German language lessons a week, among which there is one lesson devoted to folklore studies. We want our pupils to become autonomous and “independent” users of the language and in order to achieve this aim we would like to intensify our individual and institutional associations with educational institutions of the target language area. For this purpose, we have organized language camps for years, too. As a language exam (level B1 or B2) is indispensable for further studies, it is one of our main concerns that our pupils pass the exam during their years in primary school.We would like to build a school partnership programme with institutions of German-speaking countries, and we are planning to apply for an Erasmus+ KA2 mobility project.In this project, 7 teachers and a teaching assistant are participating. Our colleagues applied individually for the project and a group discussion led to the conclusion that every colleague can contribute to the successful implementation of the project.Expected impact and outcome of the project:Improving our language competencies will help us to develop our pupils’ language competencies. The children could master the learning material of folklore and cultural studies from diverse sources. The singing teacher’s improving command of the language would result in the improvement of our German choir as well as in the better teaching of German songs. The children learn singing games in the P.E. lessons, as part of a folk dance module. All the tasks that devolve upon the language teachers could be shared by more pedagogues. On the basis of its syllabus, the methodological training promotes the communication centred teaching and learning, thus the methodological knowledge and practical tips gained there could help us make our language teaching more interesting. The acquired knowledge (project-based and collaborative education) can be applied not only in the teaching of German but it can also be incorporated into the methodological repertoire of other subjects. We consider also important that we can enlarge our library and we hope to find project partners for the eTwinnig and Erasmus+ KA2 student mobility projects. The project contributes to the quality development of the whole school. As a result, our environment (parents, church community, etc.) will have a more positive view of our school.
