CONTENTS AND TOPICS
In addition to teacher training and the provision of teaching materials abroad, foreign language teaching and project-oriented models of foreign language teaching are being implemented with great success, starting with a partnership initiative of the Federal Foreign Office in 2008. They provide valuable impulses for teachers and are invaluable for the students as motivation assistance and support on their way to learning a foreign language.
The feedback from the teachers and students abroad led the project managers, Stephan Reischl and Wolfgang Hauck, to develop similar formats of the foreign language teaching for “Unaccompanied minor-age refugees” and “transitional classes” in Germany. Under the ambiguous abbreviation «K-I-D-Z» for «caravan into the future» as well as «culture initiative German as a second language», experiences and experienced speakers are brought together.
This initiative can make use of foreign language experiences in the DaZ area and support the teachers with an experienced team of speakers from various fields (media, music, theater, fashion, art).
In this way, K-I-D-Z would like to contribute to linguistic and cultural integration.
