This workshop aims to pick up on our freshly gained online social skills that we all developed during lockdown by establishing a monthly routine, aiming to stay in touch with our language whanau from all over NZ in a relaxed and encouraging way.

Let’s make the most of our online advantage – being able to bring NZ German teachers together from all over the country to exchange their expertise in a casual way.

What is covered in this workshop?
