On Thursday 31st
October DP1 Dutch L&L students welcomed a guest speaker to talk about the ‘shrinkage’
on the rural area of North Groningen: Mr. J. Gardenier, an anthropologist and
director of the Centrum voor Arbeid en Beleid (CAB) in Groningen.
He guided students –
who were all informed and working on the unit Stad vs. platteland – through all perspectives of this issue.
Students were eager to
learn, listened carefully and asked interesting questions.
All involved: teachers, students and guest speaker, thought it was a well spent lesson hour and very useful in preparation of the end task of the unit: making a SIRE advertisement on this issue.
