Class Project: Exploring The City in A Foreign Language (France)

In the Strasbourg Academy 11 foreign languages are taught: Arabic, Chinese, German, English, Italian, Hebrew, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.

Under the co-ordination of the Goethe-Institut and in collaboration with the school authority and the City of Strasbourg, representatives of the cultural institutes and diplomatic representations based in Strasbourg have approached teachers who give instruction in the Collège in the respective foreign language. They were asked to draw up, together with their students in the relevant foreign language, a walking tour of the city for young people.

The classes are being given a completely free hand in the form of these city tours and hence there is plenty of scope for individualism and intercultural differences. The tours are to be made available as a small brochure and/or download for future visits by classes of foreign school students. Visitors can thus look forward to a multilingual city guide package with individual and highly varied contributions.

Project partners:
Goethe-Institut, Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Consulates-General of China – Morocco – Poland – Portugal – Russia – Spain – Turkey – the USA, Ecole Aquiba, the school authority, the City of Strasbourg
