This week we were lucky enough to have David Fermer, author and creator of the program ‘Deutsch mit Socke’, in Queensland to present workshops to teachers and students of German.
The program embraces the old and the new through the use of sock puppets and technology, engaging learners in speaking German. The concept is complemented by the website with video clips and a workbook. In addition to workshops in schools in both Toowoomba and the Gold Coast, David led a workshop for teachers in Brisbane where they each made their own sock puppets before playing the student role and filming some rather entertaining scenes.
