Berlin impressions

This is a video Tomlinscote produced for the PASCH-net online magazine Schülerbild.
Have a look at the little city tour around Berlin (and learn some means of transport in German along the way):

Follow this link to see more videos produced by other Pasch-schools in North-West-Europe.
Do have a look at the Irish contribution! Maybe we'll play around with an 'Apfelsine' soon, too....

What do you think? Feel free to leave a comment....

Happy Chinese New Year!

Today is Chinese New Year - it's the start of the 
Year of the Dragon! 
People in China clean the house to attract good luck and give one another presents. On New Year's Eve, families have a big feast together and set off fireworks, and in the morning children receive money in red paper envelopes.

A special greeting to all the Chinese learners at Tomlinscote!

Click on the image below to get a link for a really tricky game identifying Chinese sounds! How many will you get correctly?
