The course

You are never done with learning... even well-trained teachers should study further!
A foreign language is like a continually flowing and changing river: If you want to be a good German teacher, you always have to be up-to-date!
Would you like to be informed about new teaching methods in Germany? Or about new didactic material? Do you need some ideas for the design of your lessons? Our fully-qualified team of teachers can help you with these tasks.
Selected topics:

  • Discussion about observations and impressions with experts.
  • Old and new teaching methods – pros and cons
  • One book or more? How much should the paper work be?
  • When and how often should I use audio and video support?
  • Get to know about online didactic material
  • Tipps for designing your own lessons and building your own didactic material

Work shadowing
In the afternoon, twice per week you can take work shadowing hours in our afternoon courses about communication or Business German.

All participants are invited to free discussion rounds, where you can exchange ideas and experience with other colleagues. This can take place in the school (free of charge) or in a nice atmosphere in a pub in the evening.
