Teacher training: Methodology and Didactics for German as a Foreign Language

Teacher training course for language trainers in the areas German as a Foreign Language / as a Second Language

In this five-day teacher training course varied and playful methods of language training for teachers of German as a Foreign Language in secondary and adult education are taught. The methods used are concerned with the learning areas speaking, writing, reading and listening comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, writing and learning how to learn. Our training course is designed for experienced trainers who are interested in expanding the scope of their methodological competence through individual forms of teaching in free activities and project work. Moreover, these methods are great for ice-breaking activities and repeating exercises. They were developed in foreign language training, educational play theory, theatre and experiential education.
