Events and Competitions

Activating pupils is one of the most important – and sometimes most difficult – challenges any teacher faces. The Goethe-Institut Irland 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.

Simulation Game "Climate Neutral City"

Are you a teacher of German, geography, history, science, CSPE, SPHE or English? (no German needed!). Do you want to get to know an innovative teaching and learning method and have fun at the same time? Are you and your pupils interested in climate change? 
Then join in! Take part in the international internet-based simulation game "Climate Neutral City"!
