Welcome to GET Across Borders!
We are dedicated to encouraging the use of German in Scotland.
As the protection of multilingualism is very important to us, we are happy to join our partners
and raise awareness of the benefits of learning second languages.
Apart from organising exchanges for Scottish and German university students,
we are providing exclusive material for teachers of German in Scotland.
Here's what our partners at the City of Edinburgh Council say about the GET programme:
"This is a highly valued partnership, based on solid shared commitments to supporting our young people
with language learning and in forging active, life-long links across borders.
Through our collaborative work, hundreds of Edinburgh primary and secondary pupils, their teachers and families,
have enjoyed the tangible benefits of the energy, enthusiasm and expertise our German Education Trainees
bring to our classrooms – real and virtual!
The 2020-21 cohort of GETs have made a unique and invaluable contribution, bringing language learning
to life at a time of great challenge and uncertainty.
We are all looking forward to watching this partnership grow and flourish in years to come."
