Professional Development in Ireland

​You are cordially invited to attend our teacher training events which we organise in collaboration with other agencies.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic our professional development events have moved online. We hope that in 2021 we will be able to return to onsite events with special precautions in place.

DLL Regional Courses in Northwestern Europe © Goethe-Institut


Deutsch Lehren Lernen® (DLL) is the Goethe-Institut’s practical continuing education and professional development series for DaF and DaZ teachers of German (primary, secondary, and adult education). The Goethe-Institut Irland offers regional DLL courses for teachers within Northwestern Europe.

DLL focuses on the German language classroom whether that is in Primary, Secondary or Adult Education and deals with the key players and fundamental elements of lessons. With the DLL approach, traditional topics such as language skills, grammar, vocabulary, phonetics, literature, classroom formats, etc.are integrated into a competence-driven teaching concept. 

With our regional DLL courses you will have the opportunity to share and refresh your specialist knowledge with German teachers from the Northwestern Europe region (Ireland, UK, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands). You will gradually develop your professional skills by trying out new things and reflecting on your own teaching. Take part in this blended-learning format from the comfort of your own home while being accompanied by experienced DLL Tutors.
