Evie enjoys Goethe Institut’s Among ‘Us’ Event
As a Pasch school, students in Year 10 and 11 were given the opportunity to join together with students of German from the Czech Republic to connect and play the popular online game ‘Among Us’ in German. Participating students were given a list of useful vocabulary in advance in order to play the game and the first session was a getting-to-know you session where students used German to introduce themselves.
Evie Farnell, a Year 11 GCSE German student attended and said: “I was very nervous going into the event as I didn’t know anyone else who was doing it. Once everyone joined, instructions were given out – all in German. It was overwhelming at first, but Simone spoke slowly and repeated parts so it was understandable for everyone. We were put into smaller breakout groups of about five or six. We slowly got the hang of the game and by the end no one was embarrassed as we all were shouting and laughing with each other in semi-broken yet understandable German.
“It was such a fun experience and my group were all quite sad when the hour was up and it ended. I would definitely do it again if the chance arises!”
