Mátyás Bánhegyi and Judit Nagy: Canadian Studies for the High School: The Canadian-German-Hungarian Cultural Reader

Book review

The Canadian-German-Hungarian Cultural Reader Project was initiated as a pilot project and aimed to bridge the gap between difficult-to-grasp and hard-to-present cultural information and its simple, easy-tounderstand classroom presentation. the project also intends to reveal how complex foreign policy and cultural policy priorities can be transferred into challenging and inviting classroom activities through already acquired knowledge contents, which enable easy access to these otherwise demanding topics. In addition, the project demonstrates that ideally designed activities will serve the purpose of teaching both language and culture. The tricultural Reader has been realised with the help of an Understanding Canada grant, and targets the upper primary and secondary school (grades 7 to 12) audience and their teachers.
