New Design Question!!!
HOW CAN WE MOTIVATE GERMANS AND NON-GERMANS TO GO ON ACTIVITIES TOGETHER FOR IMPROVING THE SPEAKING OF GERMAN AND TO MAKE INTEGRATION EASIER?
#1Reasearch with Non-Germans:
-having a hard time to make German friends
-are not brave enough to start a contact
-think that the language is the biggest barrier
-bad luck with tandem partners: they are not easy to find for every language / they don´t arrive at the appointment
-high interest in small activities together with a German person to improve German and to lose fear of socialisation
-they are having a better time learning German if they live together with Germans / it´s easier to get known to eaven more Germans if you already know even one
-integration as a result of speaking German and speaking German as a result of integration / no integration as a result of not speaking German and not speaking German as a result of no integration
#Research with Germans:
-if they have time they would probaply spend it with a person who wants to learn German
-if they would get small gifts / rabatt / coupons they would be motivated to take foreign people to their private activities
-proposed activities would be visit of zoo, museums, city trips, sports, going outside, taking a walk, workshops etc.
FURTHER PLANNED STEPS / OPEN QUESTIONS:
-how can we define the group of people?
-which activities are reasonable?
-where do we catch the people?
-what motivates Germans?
-is the volenteer center / language school / a bar /etc. a good place?
Happy for comments, ideas, experience etc.!!!
