DW Contest : "Learning by Ear" wants to tell your story!

"Learning by Ear" wants to tell your story! Take part in our competition and tell us your story. Your idea can inspire a new “Learning by Ear” series, broadcast all over Africa in six different languages. 

So far, we have told the stories of many young Africans, like for example Jonathan who dreamt of becoming one of the most successful soccer players in the world. Or do you remember 16 year old Desirée? After the death of her mother she had to take care of her little brother.

Now it’s your turn: What are the most important lessons you’ve learned about life? Or tell us which topics you want to hear more about in “Learning by Ear”!

Please, write to us at by 15th of June 2012.

The story of the winning group will be turned into a new “Learning by Ear” series. Your story will also be adapted for the stage in your town and your group can act in the production!
