As part of our prestigious collaboration with PASCH, many Windsor language learners have recently been fortunate enough to take part in a European research study (in conjunction with Reading University) about online learning. The study is funded by the European Erasmus+ project and is entitled Knights of the European Grail - a computer-based game to support language learning.
On Mon 20th June, our school was visited by two representatives from the Goethe-Institut and the European Commission to undertake testing and feedback on the use of the app on trial, with 10 of our Year 10 Germanists.
During the testing, the Year 10 learners completed a German vocabulary test and undertook the challenge of “solving the puzzle”, followed by a questionnaire. Our visitors were very impressed by our students' level of German, determination and helpful feedback.
As it is still in development, the game itself is not yet available for the general public - the prototype has only been tested by a few select schools worldwide, including Windsor. Once available, however, the app will provide learners of English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese with a new and innovative way to learn languages and in several European countries.
Another great accolade for our school and the languages department.
Well done Windsor Germanists!
