Funkbrucke Conference Call.
Wicke, Rainer E., Comp.
A guide to the use of radio and telecommunications to promote international student communication describes a project in which teenagers from Cologne (West Germany) and Edmonton (Alberta) discuss their concerns via radio as well as provide descriptions of life in West Germany and Canada. Transcripts from two radio programs--one in English and one in German--illustrate the exchange of ideas on how to solve international problems such as pollution, international warfare, and starvation in the Third World, and discuss topics such as lifestyles, school, leisure time, and hopes for the future. Other materials included are photographs of the students and production staff, teaching tips, worksheets, and newspaper articles about the project. The materials are suggested for use in German language teaching, social studies instruction, and promotion of German language study. (MSE)
