Honorarlehrkraft für Kinderkurse
am Goethe-Institut Sydney

The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institution of the Federal Republic of Germany operating worldwide. We promote knowledge of the German language abroad and foster international cultural cooperation. Our international field of activity requires a great openness to other cultures and a high intercultural competence. At our institutes in Sydney and Melbourne, we offer high quality German language courses and internationally recognised German language examinations.
