A cooperative online seminar series for teachers from France and the UK

Are you a motivated teacher who would like to develop your teaching skills and network with German teachers across the channel? 

In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Paris, we cordially invite you to our three-part online seminar series. Join us on a journey to discover contemporary German language teaching and to think about teaching the different skills and grammar in a modern and interactive way. Using concrete examples, we will show you how to motivate and support your students to use German in an active way.

In addition, an online room is available where you can network with German teachers from France and the UK. There you will have the opportunity to reflect and discuss the methods used in the online seminars and share best-practice examples. You can also use this opportunity to initiate transnational student projects with German as a mediating language.
