‘Harmony day with the Goethe society of WA’

It was a real pleasure to contribute to the Goethe Society’s celebration for Harmony day.

After spending some time with the parents watching all German speaking children play different games, we had a taste of several yummy German food, including Pretzels.

I then read books in French and in Spanish. It was an interactive session where there were exchanges of words in German, French and Spanish. We try to guess words in one of those 3 languages and I could tell some were made up even when it was in German.

Christine Reger, the language coordinator, kindly mentioned us in her article in the April issue of the Treffpunkt (page 3).

I look forward to collaborating on more events promoting multiculturalism in Perth and in Australia.
