The Goethe-Institut is the world's leading provider of professional development for German teachers, as well as offering advice on curricula and teaching materials for practice-oriented learning. We have been setting standards in teaching German as a foreign language (Deutsch als Fremdsprache; DaF) and German as a second language (Deutsch als Zweitsprache; DaZ) for over 60 years. We offer you a comprehensive programme of professional development for teachers – in your home country, in Germany or via distance learning. We provide you with up-to-date material and interactive services. Find out about events held by the Goethe-Institut for teachers.
