Host a Teacher from Germany – What next?
The programme has allowed us to set up contact with a school that we expect to continue and grow into a long-term project. The visitor was a great ambassador for Germany, and motivated the children to find out more about German culture. The programme was free for us – few things this good come for free!

Our school felt that we had brought a piece of the world into the classroom by hosting the German teacher for 3 weeks. It encouraged our students to see things from a different perspective, preparing them to become good citizens. (UK coordinating teacher)
