Nationale Deutscholympiade in India

The first digital National Olympiad was conducted in April’ 2020 by InDaF (The Indo German Teachers Association) in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut.
27 winners of the preliminary rounds were the privileged participants. They went through a week of preparation for the actual competition. Apps like Flipgrid, Kahoot, quizizz, Youtube videos and apps of the Goethe-Institute like Erfindenker made the learning a lot smoother. The students also had to learn to work in Moodle.
But it was creating videos that the students enjoyed the most. It was here that they got a chance to showcase their language, talent and creativity.
Finally six Jurors from the Goethe-Institut and InDaF decided on the following winners:

1. Farhan B. Ahmed (Testimonial)
2. Aryan Shah (Testimonial)

BNiharika Gore, Kimatra Reddy, Shriya Joshi and Devansh Jaggi were the runners up. All four will have a chance to participate in a youth camp in India.

Both the boys represented India at the virtual International Olympiad held in August’2020.
