From 9th to 13th September 2008 four courses were presented to German primary teachers and probationers who teach English as a second language. From February 2009 all class one pupils in the primary schools in Nordrhein-Westfalen will be introduced to English. Gisela Ehlers, IQSH Kiel, director of a highly successful Comenius project using Storyline for this purpose and Steve Bell, Storyline consultant, led these inservice workshop courses. The first three – in Gemeinschaftschule Steinenbruck,Gummersbach (Mr Koster), Sparkassen Akademie, Münster, (Christine Gross & Stephanie Stecker) and in Albert-Schweitzer-Schule, Menden, (Lisa Hinse) were sponsored by the publisher Spectra and the final two-day event in Hotel Schweinsberg, Lennestadt Langenei was offered by Brigitte Stäsche and her Kompetenzteam. All the courses proved to be lively and interesting because of the interest and enthusiasm of the teachers.
