Having German exchange students in my lesson has provided a super opportunity to discuss the position of the German economy within the Euro Area and to compare and contrast macroeconomic indicators between the UK and Europe's largest economy. Here is a selection of some of the video clips that have been used as prompts for discussion.
How Germany has become Europe's largest economy (PBS, Feb 2012)
Success of German Mittelstand firms (Al Jazeerah)
How the German model survives (FT analysis)
Germany's great dilemma (FT, December 2010)
