Internationalisierung der Mittelschule als Ziel der Zukunft in einer globalisierten Welt
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our school, a Bavarian "Mittelschule", is attended by a lot of pupils who are not able to communicate in German because they originally come from other countries. Therefore, in a lot of cases the only way of communication between a teacher and a pupil is to use the English language. For our German pupils English becomes more and more important, because it is spoken nearly everywhere in the world. They will also need to use it at work in their future jobs. In bavarian "Mittelschulen" English is mostly taught by teachers who are of course not native speakers either and they also did not study English at university. For these reasons I would like that two of my teachers take part in this course in Ireland. Our aim to internationalize our school would only be possible if teachers are able to speak English properly and if they also use the latest media and methodologies in their English lessons. By using new media and motivating methods, it is expected that it will become easier for our pupils to get interested in English and they will realize its importance as a world-wide spoken language. Additionally, our school has two international partner schools so we are planning a student exchange programme where pupil can get into contact with people or students from other countries and also gain more information about their cultures. They will also get the possibility to communicate by eTwinning where they have to use the English language. Pupils shouldn´t be afraid of getting into contact with people from other countries and other cultures. They will also gain the opportunity to use the English language self confidently. After the course in Ireland the two teachers who took part will impart their new knowledge to the other teachers in our school. All of our teachers should understand the importance of internationalizing our school. They should also get to know how to use eTwinning so. They can organise and realize projects with our partner schools via the Internet. The long-term aim of this project is to make our school fit for the future in a world of increased globalization. We want to try all new possibilities and we consider that it is essential that we don´t only just concentrate on our own school and region.
