Goodbye to our German Language Assistant

21 May 2021

Sadly, we are saying goodbye to Kevin Röttger at half-term, who has been our German Language Assistant here at Sutton High this academic year.  Kevin came over from Bremen in north Germany through the British Council Language Assistants scheme and has been improving his English as part of his training to become an English and politics teacher.  He has worked with every year group in Senior School, and has even been along to Prep to teach one or two lessons there recently.

Kevin built up excellent relationships with pupils and staff and thought creatively about his teaching, the main aim of which was to build up girls’ fluency and confidence in speaking.  He will be missed!

Some of our German enthusiasts made this film where they interviewed him about his experiences over in England and his plans for the future.  It is mainly in German but there are some English questions, too.
