Are your pupils in year 10 or 11? Do they like playing with German words? Would they like to take part in a poetry workshop with a world poetry slam champion and meet other students who are studying German?

The Goethe-Institut is delighted to invite students from years 10 and 11 to take part in a poetry workshop with poet Harry Baker and to have fun with the German language. 

Harry Baker is a world poetry slam champion and Maths Graduate. His love of numbers and words have taken him all over the world, including a year living and studying in Hannover. When there isn’t a global pandemic on he spends his time touring the country performing in theatres and schools. His talk at TEDxVienna ‘How learning German taught me the link between Maths and Poetry’ has been viewed 1.4 million times and he is currently working on a new show based on his time in Germany.

There will be a short talk from Harry about his love of German and how learning German has helped him with Maths and poetry. His talk will be followed by a workshop where your pupils will have the opportunity to work with other learners of German to write and perform a poem or spoken word piece, showing off their love of German words!

The workshop offers a great chance to actively use the German language in a fun setting while also getting to know other secondary school students from across the UK.

The poetry workhops will take place (repeated) on:

Friday, 27 November 2020, 14:00-15:30
Friday, 4 December 2020, 14:00-15:30
