German Poetry Come to Life! - online

Friday, 22 March, 2024 - 11:00 to 12:00
Event Type: 
North West

Routes NW is coordinating a series of free online workshops to accompany the Mother Tongue Other Tongue competition. Details of each session, together with registration links, is available below. This is the ideal opportunity to engage pupils in creative language production, whether they intend to enter MTOT or not. We hope to engage a wide range of teachers and pupils in these live events, but will ensure materials are shared with registered teachers after the event. Further details on MTOT and how to enter can be found here:

All events are aimed at students (and their teachers!) currently in Years 7-9.

We encourage the whole class to attend and take part in this fun and interactive workshop. Run by the University of Liverpool; If you have any questions, please contact
