German Cultural Calendar for February … you asked, we listened!

A handful of German teachers reached out last year to ask if there would be a German Cultural Calendar after I launched my first free French Cultural Calendar in June 2020 in the first lockdown.

A lovely teacher friend on Twitter Fräulein Dreznin @ldreznin got in touch and said that she would love to collaborate.. and so with a bit of help and guidance from Polly Glot Languages, here it is HOT OFF THE PRESS, the February edition of the cultural calendar…hopefully with more to come in the coming months! If you would like to contribute please let myself @suzibewell or @ldreznin know on Twitter ASAP.

Please, as with all these high quality, culturally rich resources, consider buying us a coffee to say thanks for our hard work and commitment:

Enjoy and please leave us feedback www.twitter.com/suzibewell

Best wishes Suzi and Frau Dreznin xx

Spanish Cultural Calendar for February

Many Spanish teachers contacted me to ask if there would be a Spanish Cultural Calendar after I launched my first free French Cultural Calendar in June 2020 in the first lockdown.

Since then I started a part time post as Visiting Lecturer in MFL at Leeds Trinity University…and some of my super talented Spanish speaking trainees (led by the fantastic Fede who shared my vision) have collaborated (with some help from Polly Glot Languages) to produce this Spanish calendar…with more to come in the coming months!

Please, as with all these high quality, culturally rich resources, consider buying these guys a coffee to say thanks for all their hard work and commitment:

Best wishes Suzi and the Spanish LTU trainees xx
