Excitement of Oktoberfest at Tarsus American College

 

Tarsus American College hosted Oktoberfest activities during the week of October 25.

TAC Oktoberfest, in its 12th year at TAC, was enthusiastically celebrated by second foreign language learners this year. The bell tunes heard during the breaks of the day were reminders of the “Oktoberfest” and the German menu at lunch was another color of this special day. “Oktoberfest Celebration with Foreign Language Games” was an enrichment for the language learning of 9th and 10th grade students.

The school garden was a scene for the games which brought to the fore the highlights of German culture and language, reflecting the school’s emphasis in language education. TAC’s teachers of German, who design their instructional methods in light of most current educational needs, were happy to provide an alternative tool to reinforce student learning.
