”German on Stage” – 8th edition (9th– 12th May 2018)

Fernão Mendes Pinto School participated again in this national school theater festival, organized by the Goethe-Institut Portugal, promoting the use of theater practices as a strategy to motivate students to learn German as a foreign language.

Working on a every year different common topic students in each participating school write their own script, rehearse for some months and then get together in the city of Almada, where the festival always takes place.

“Challenges” was the topic for 2017/2018. Eleven schools all over the country joined the festival and brought their final products to be shown to a large public, gathering teachers, students, families, representatives of different institutions and of the municipality.

“German on Stage” is a successful example of process-oriented and product-oriented drama, with all the benefits resulting from these approaches.
