Technology: TechSmith Labs

Here is a cool website I ran into and I think you should check out. "TechSmith Labs is the home for temporary trials, wacky experiments, and maybe TechSmith's next best thing. Check their website for latest experiments. While these experiments may be cool, keep in mind that they're experiments – they may morph into other ideas, turn into products, or discreetly disappear forever."

News: German Comics poke fun at their homeland

Chris here again. Today I have a link to share with fellow German learners and teachers on German comedy. I came across the link on a Goethe-Institut post on Facebook, and thought I would share it with you. The link is from a recent Wall Street Journal article.

German Comics poke fun at their homeland 

As the Wall Street Journal article reports, there is a growing trend of German comedians who are entertaining abroad by poking fun at their homeland. The article mentions the Lederhosen-wearing Hilby the Skinny German Juggle Boy among this group that mocks Germany. These comedians are mining national stereotypes in their acts and some are even expanding their routines to include once taboo subjects such as Germans dealing with post-war culpability. You can find plenty of links in the article to these various comics' homepages. Enjoy!

Which German comedians do you enjoy? Have you used any German jokes or riddles in your classes?

News: 14 ways for teachers to collaborate

"There are a variety of ways teachers can collaborate with each others to improve their teaching experience and grow professionally. One of the workable and useful ways to do it is through the power of personal learning networks PLNs. Most of social media platforms now host a plethora of PLNs where educators and teachers get to exchange their expertise and in most cases access to these spaces is open and anybody can join and contribute in the conversation."

German: Cro - Einmal um die Welt (song)

Here is Christina with your weekly German song!
This time another catchy German song but Cro, the famous German rapper with the Panda mask: "Einmal um die Welt" ("Once Around the World").

I hope you like this song as much as I do! :)

Einmal um die Welt

Baby bitte mach dir nie
mehr Sorgen um Geld,
gib mir nur deine Hand
ich kauf dir Morgen die Welt.
Egal wohin du willst,
wir fliegen um die Welt,
haun' sofort wieder ab,
 wenn es dir hier nicht gefällt.

Ost, West oder Nord
hab den Jackpot an Board
will von hier über London
direkt nach New York.
Denn ab heute leb' ich jeden
Tag als ob ich Morgen tot wäre.
Laufe durch den Park und werf‘
mit Geld als ob es Brot wäre.
Nur noch Kaviar Champagner
oder Schampus,
Baby ich erfüll' dir wirklich
jeden Wunsch mit Handkuss.
Frühstück in Paris und
danach joggen auf Hawaii
und um das Ganze noch zu toppen
gehen wir shoppen in LA.
Also pack dir deine Zahnbürste ein,
denn ab heute bist du mehr
als an nur einem 
Ort Daheim.
Mit meinem Babe in der Hand
und 'nem Safe an der Wand.
Können wir tun was wir wollen
und das Leben ist noch lang,
Also komm.

Baby bitte mach dir nie
mehr Sorgen um Geld,
gib mir nur deine Hand
ich kauf dir Morgen die Welt.
Egal wohin du willst
wir fliegen um die Welt,
haun' sofort wieder ab,
wenn es dir hier nicht gefällt.

Sie will Kreditkarten
und meine Mietwagen
Sie will Designerschuhe und davon
ganz schön viel haben
Manolo Blahnik, Prada,
Gucci und Lacoste
Kein Problem dann kauf' ich halt
für deine Schuhe gleich 

ein ganzes Schloss.
Sie will in Geld baden
und sie will Pelz tragen.
Und sie will schnell fahren,
einmal um die Welt fahren.
Sie kann sich kaufen
was sie wollte doch nie hatte
denn ich hab jetzt die American Express
und zwar die schwarze,
also komm...

Baby bitte mach dir nie
mehr Sorgen um Geld,
gib mir nur deine Hand
ich kauf dir Morgen die Welt.
Egal wohin du willst
wir fliegen um die Welt,
haun' sofort wieder ab,
wenn es dir hier nicht gefällt.

Once Around the World

Baby, please don’t worry
‘bout money ever again
just give me your hand
tomorrow I’ll buy you the world
No matter where you want to go,
we’ll fly around the world
We’ll take off right now
if you don’t like it here

East, west, or north
I’ve got the jackpot on board
via London from here
directly to New York
‘cause from now on, I’ll live every
day as if it’d be my last
Run through the park throwing
money around as if it were bread.
Just caviar, champagne
or bubbly
Baby, I’ll really fulfill your
every wish with a kiss on the hand,
breakfast in Paris; and
then go jogging on Hawaii
and to still top all that off,
we’ll go shopping in L.A.
so don’t forget to pack your toothbrush
‘cause from now on
you’re at home at more 
than just one place
With my babe hand in hand
and a safe on the wall
we can do what we want
and our lives are still long
so come on

Baby, please don’t worry
‘bout money ever again
just give me your hand
tomorrow I’ll buy you the world
No matter where you want to go,
we’ll fly around the world
We’ll take off right now
if you don’t like it here

She wants credit cards
and my rental car
she wants designer shoes and of those
a whole lot of them
Manolo Blahnik, Prada,
Gucci, and Lacoste;
no problem, then I’ll just buy
a whole castle 
for your shoes.
She wants to swim in money
and she wants to wear fur
She wants to drive fast,
drive around the world once
so she can buy
the stuff she wants that she never had
since I now have American Express,
and the black one at that
so come on…

Baby, please don’t worry
‘bout money ever again
just give me your hand
tomorrow I’ll buy you the world
No matter where you want to go,
we’ll fly around the world
We’ll take off right
now if you don’t like it here

German: Word of the Week - tiefsinnig

Here is Christina with your German word of the week!

This week:
tiefsinnig /  profound

The adjective tiefsinnig has the words "tief" (deep) and "der Sinn" (the sense, meaning) in it. "Tiefsinnig" means something along the lines of "full of deep meaning," and it can thus be translated into English as "profound."

Here are some examples of how you can use this word:

Deine Gedanken sind sehr tiefsinnig. / Your thoughts are very profound.
Seine Lieder sind leider nicht besonders tiefsinnig. / Unfortunately, is songs are not very profound.
Sie schreibt sehr tiefsinnige Bücher. / She writes very profound books.
Ich liebe tiefsinnige Texte! / I love profound texts.
Alles was du sagst ist so tiefsinnig! / Everything you say is so profound!

News: Ohio district to relax Internet filter for teachers, students

From SmartBrief:

Beginning this month, an Ohio school district will relax its Internet filters to allow teachers and students easier access to educational material. This is a change from the district's past practice, which took a hard line against sites with potentially objectionable content, including YouTube, anatomy diagrams and retail sites. Under the new practice, high-school students also will, for the first time, have access to social media, but their activities will be monitored.

News: Mapping where English is not the language at home

"More than a quarter of counties in the United States have at least one in 10 households where English is not the language spoken at home. Spanish is, by far, the most common language other than English spoken in the home, especially on the West Coast, in the Southwest, the Eastern urban corridor and other big cities. Native American languages are also common in the West, as is French around New Orleans and in some counties in the Northeast. German is a common language in some Midwestern and Western areas"

News: The Flipped Classroom

Hello everyone,

Here is a very interesting article I found that discusses a model of teaching and learning based on experiential education.
"It is a model in which authentic, often hands-on, experiences and student interests drive the learning process, and the videos, as they are being proposed in the flipped classroom discourse, support the learning rather than being central or at the core of learning."

French: Guédelon (Video)

From My French Neighbor:

In the heart of Puisaye, in Yonne, Burgundy, a team of fifty people have taken on an extraordinary feat: to build a castle using the same techniques and materials used in the Middle Ages.

The wood, stone, earth, sand and clay needed for the castle's construction are all to be found here, in this abandoned quarry. Watched by thousands of visitors, all the trades associated with castle-building - quarrymen, stonemasons, woodcutters, carpenters, blacksmiths, tile makers, basket makers, rope makers, carters and their horses - are all working together to complete the castle.

Work on the site began in 1997 and is scheduled to take 25 years to complete.

Guédelon offers a unique opportunity to witness all the various different phases of a castle's construction.

Let yourself be transported from the present day, back to the sights and sounds of a 13th-century construction site.

Guédelon offers something for everyone: archaeologists, historians, teachers, students and families.

Old English by British College Students

Chris here with a great link to share for those interested in the history of English. From the Huffington Post (original post):

As English continues to become the global go-to language, it's easy to forget that it was drastically different even just a few hundred years ago. These students from the University of Sheffield in the UK recreated famous movie scenes in Old English, an English precursor from the 12th century.

German: Clueso - Chicago (song)

Here is Christina with your weekly German song!
This time a beautiful German song about a beautiful American city:
"Chicago" ("No, Man!") by Clueso.

Clueso, a.k.a. Thomas Hübner, is a German singer, rapper, and songwriter named after Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther. He is known for songs with deep lyrics that go under your skin! Enjoy!

Chicago - Deutsch

Sie is immer da, 

wo was los is,
immer mitten in der Stadt.
Dort, wo die kleine Welt 

ganz groß is,
sieht sie sich an den Lichtern satt.

Sie erzählt dann und wann
von dem und dem,
denn sie hat jeden schon gehabt.
Auch wenn sie
sich selbst nicht ganz so pflegt,
pflegt sie zumindest den Kontakt.

Und sie träumt von Chicago, von Chicago,
irgendwo, wo sie keiner kennt.
Und sie träumt von Chicago, von Chicago,
dort wo niemand,
niemand ihren Namen nennt.

Mit ihrem sonnigen Traum vor Augen
läuft sie durch den Regen.
Und jedem,
den sie auf der Straße trifft,
erzählt sie, sie wär da gewesen.

Beschreibt, in welcher Ecke sie schon war,
denn sie kennt immerhin dies und das.
Und wenn du bisschen was dabei hast,
nimmt sie dich mit für eine Nacht.

Sie nimmt dich mit nach Chicago,
nach Chicago,
irgendwohin, wo dich keiner kennt.
Sie nimmt dich mit nach Chicago,
nach Chicago,
dort wo niemand,
niemand deinen Namen nennt.

Doch wenn man ihr erzählt,
welchen Traum sie lebt,
dann spielt sie gleich verrückt.
Denn auch wenn sie kurz schläft,
sobald das Licht angeht,
dann muss sie schnell zurück.

Manchmal trifft sie sich
mit ein paar Leuten
an einem unbestimmten Platz.
Und wenn dort frisches Zeug
durch die Adern fließt,
Gibt man ‘n Löffel an die Kumpels ab.

Und diesmal is sie nicht gekomm‘,
vielleicht hat sie’s nicht gepackt.
Nur eine kleine Nachricht ist alles,
was sie hinterlassen hat:

Ich komm nie mehr!
Ich bin in Chicago, in Chicago,
irgendwo, wo mich keiner kennt.

(Oh— oh)
Ich komm nie mehr! Ich bin in Chicago,
in Chicago,
dort wo niemand,
niemand meinen Namen nennt.
(Oh — o — Oh)

In Chicago!
Wo mich keiner kennt!
Ich komm nie mehr!
In Chicago! (Oh — oh)
Ich komm nie mehr!

Chicago - English

You can always find her 

where the action is
Always in the middle of the town
That’s where her little world 

becomes so big
‘Cos she can’t get enough of the lights.

Every now and then she talks
about some guy or another
‘Cos she’s been with everybody
Even if she
doesn’t really take care of herself
She takes good care of her connections.

And she dreams of Chicago, of Chicago,
A place where nobody knows her
And she dreams of Chicago, of Chicago,
A place where nobody,
nobody calls her name.

With her sunny dream in sight
She runs thru the rain.
And she tells everyone
she meets in the streets
That she has been there.

Describes what corner she had been to
‘Cos she knows, after all, this and that
And if you have a little something on you
She takes you along for the night

She takes you along to Chicago,
to Chicago,
A place where nobody knows you
She takes you along to Chicago,
to Chicago,
A place where nobody,
nobody calls your name.

But when you tell her
What kind of dream she’s living
She immediately starts acting crazy
‘Cos even if she only sleeps a little,
As soon as the light comes on
She has to get back quick.

Sometimes she meets
with a couple of people
At an indeterminate place
And when fresh stuff flows
thru your veins
You share a spoonful with your buddies.

And this time she hasn’t come
Maybe she hasn’t made it
A little message is all
That she’s left behind:

I won’t be back!
I’m in Chicago, in Chicago,
A place where nobody knows me. 

(Oh— oh)
I won’t be back! I’m in Chicago,
in Chicago,
A place where nobody,
nobody knows my name.
(Oh — o — Oh)

In Chicago!
Where nobody knows me
I won’t be back
In Chicago
I won’t be back!
