CLIL & STEM
Speak German learn Science
The Goethe-Institut supports schools throughout Australia intending to start, facilitate and strengthen CLIL German programs in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
German is considered, after English, one of the key languages used in science professionally and in research. In Australia and Germany there is genuine demand for STEM professionals. Students combining excellent STEM and language competencies have access to a wealth of academic and professional opportunities. Bringing STEM and German language learning together is at the heart of the Goethe-Institut’s CLIL/STEM initiative.
