Events and Competitions

Activating pupils is one of the most important – and sometimes most difficult – challenges any teacher faces. The Goethe-Institut Kanada has therefore put together a series of cultural events and competitions designed to help you motivate your pupils and to make learning German more fun.

Internationale Deutscholympiade (IDO) 2024

Every two years, young German learners from several countries meet in Germany to put their German skills to the test. Canada will be taking part in the IDO (International German Olympiad) for the seventh time in 2024!

We look back to a great weekend full of fun and unforgettable encounters and congratulate our two winners: Victoria Ngoy Ndomvbe from Montreal and Carter Whitehead from Toronto! In the Summer of 2024, they will represent Canada in the largest international German competition, the IDO in Göttingen.
