The German Embassy website launches an interactive section for Indian and German school students
Making way for a better interaction platform between school children in India and Germany, the German Embassy website recently launched a new section ‘Kids’ Corner’. Designed exclusively for students, this section will now enable students of German Schools, PASCH (Partners for the Future) schools and Kendriya Vidyalayas to exchange ideas and enhance information on Germany as a whole.
The website is divided into four sections: Discover Germany, Germany and India, Do Deutsch and Fun Space.
‘Discover Germany’ is designed to help anyone explore Germany virtually; it discusses about its land and people, its governance, foreign offices. It gives insights of German music, food and its culture. It also relates to the education system of Germany, German foreign services and links the visitors to some pages related to German cities.
‘India and Germany’ speaks about the bilateral relations between the two nations and talks about 60 years of diplomatic relation. German is rapidly becoming the foreign language of choice for Indian students; the Embassy has begun its new campaign #k GerMANY that promotes German in more than 1,000 KendriyaVidyalayas across India. It also relates to the six German missions in different cities in India.
‘Do Deutsch’ explains the benefits of learning the German language and the opportunities linked with it. There are about 1,000 centers in India where German is being taught as a foreign language.
‘Fun Space’ is a platform filled with interesting quizzes, games and gives insights into German pop art. The games and quizzes are developed in a manner to polish the German language skills of children.
While launching the ‘Kids’ Corner’, German ambassador to India Michael Steiner said, “Germany and India are partners since ages. However, we still don’t know enough about each other. In today’s globalised world, we need to close this knowledge gap. We want to reach out especially to the young people in Germany and India. The Kids’ Corner virtually brings Germany on your mind — in the language of the young, with texts for the young and topics of the young.”
