Activating pupils is one of the most important – and sometimes most difficult – challenges any teacher faces. Therefore, Goethe-Institut Malaysia organizes a series of cultural events and competitions designed to help motivating the pupils and to make learning German more fun.
We also offer further training events for German teachers to enhance and broaden their teaching skills.
