Peter Samson , tutor and owner of Café Pierre Languages based in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire and the Tees Valley, has recently returned from Germany with a new partnership in Oberhausen the twin town of Middlesbrough.
Peter, who teaches German to adults wanted a partner in Oberhausen in order to develop a new language programme that includes modern day technology.
Café Pierre Languages has partners in la Coruña Spain, in the city of Bourges in central France, in the city of Kostroma in Russia, and in the Netherlands in the city of Breda.
” I am delighted that we have made an excellent start to our project. ‘ Digital Briefs. Freunde’ Digital Pen friends in English.
Our partner, the Volkshochschüle in Oberhausen is very keen to develop my ideas. This is especially important to me as I was born in Middlesbrough and I can develop links between my home town and a real town in Germany that has many similarities to those of Middlesbrough, the Tees Valley and North Yorkshire.
In this Brexit age in which we live, I have proven that there are many English speakers who want to learn a language.”
Languages such as Hindi, Japanese and Russian are among the languages on offer. Along with Dutch, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Classes are based around the Tees valley, North Yorkshire and the north East including a project in South Shields.
“The level of language explodes when our students are in contact with a native speaker involved with our projects.
Cultural information and transfer is authentic and we learn what it is really like to live in Germany, Spain, France, Russia, the Netherlands.”
“I am looking for an Italian partner now to widen the range of our portfolio.”
