Barbara is the German teacher in the Danish department, aiming to make the exploration of another culture through its language an enjoyable experience. She employs creative methods such as singing, dancing, acting, and poetry to create a child-friendly learning environment for German language acquisition. In the initial years of their language journey, Barbara uses books, videos, and games as effective tools to familiarise children with the German language and its cultural nuances.
