During the programme
During our Teacher Education in German programme you will learn about teaching methodology, literature and culture of the German-speaking countries, linguistics and second language acquisition.
With a waning teaching population, there are many opportunities for you as a German teacher, working at Dutch high schools. Alternatively, you can also teach the subject at schools abroad.
If you want to apply to our Teacher Education in German programme, you need to have a secondary school diploma, and speak English at least at CEFR level B1. Your level of German should also be B1 CEFR. Non-native speakers of German will have to hand in a copy of their Goethe-Zertifikat B1 or higher in order to be admitted. Of course, love for German and teaching is a must!
You are a social person with excellent communication skills and enjoy working with children and young adults.
Passionate about language and culture
You enjoy reading and writing and are interested in other cultures. You are keen to share your passion for foreign languages with others.
