A Rock 'N' Roll Aproach to Learning German
Enlarge image (© Uwe Kind) Can German language learning be "interactive", "high energy" and "fun" - yes it can!
Join us for a rock 'n' roll "language concert" with international communicator Uwe Kind! His music combines melody, rhythm, movement, drama and phrases to help students learn and memorize the German language!
Uwe never fails to bring down the house with his unique interactive language performances. All concerts begin with an inspiring video to warm up the audience. Then the music starts and Uwe gets them singing, rapping and dancing in no time...
Please RSVP by May 20th to german-institute%27%org,info or at (404) 892-2388.

Uwe Kind, who lives in New York City, is an international communicator and has developed two language learning techniques that are based on the premise that music helps language students with memorization, intonation, and pronunciation. One is SingLing, a language learning technique which is based on familiar tunes and used by students and teachers world-wide as a fun and effective way to learn conversational German, Spanish, and English as a second language. The other is LingoTech which Kind has created and developed with Mark Schaffel. LingoTech is music that fuses melody, rhythm, drama, movement, and language phrases into a total experience that inspires young people to acquire languages.
For the German educational network, ARD, he created and co-produced "English Alive", a TV series to learn English as a foreign language. Uwe's approach extends well beyond the classroom. Some of his notable students include Johnny Carson and David Letterman. He now travels extensively to train teachers and to hold LingoTech concerts here and abroad.
