19th March 2018 – Last week our Year 9 German pupils had the opportunity to watch a play performed entirely in German. Here, two of them tell us more about this, one in English, and one in German …

I found this year’s German play both very interesting and very entertaining and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was surprised at how much German I managed to understand, and because I understood the majority, I was able to follow what was happening. I felt that the actors made the play very relatable to our age group, and therefore we were able to enjoy it even more, especially as some of our class were invited up on to the stage to take part in the action. I also think that it was good that we had a copy of some of the scenes before we watched the play so that we had a rough idea of what it was going to be about and what to expect. Finally, I found that watching the German play has meant that I have learnt lots of new vocabulary that I can now use in my work in class.

Ich fand das Theaterstück „Hausarrest“ sehr lustig und unterhaltsam. Mir hat es sehr gut gefallen, weil die Darsteller Szenarien benutzt haben, die wir verstehen konnten. Ich glaube, dass die Darsteller manchmal sehr schnell gesprochen haben, aber im Großen und Ganzen hat mir das Theaterstück sehr gut gefallen.
