German Language Teacher Education

Germany is one of the strongest and most important economies in the world, making German a key language to learn for international business. It is also a language that bears strong cultural significance to Europe and beyond. Read on to learn about what it takes to be a German language teacher.

Inside German Language Teacher Education

German (language) education and German studies degree programs are available at the undergraduate and graduate levels. A degree program in German education prepares students to teach German to pupils of all ages. Typical college classes include German language, foreign language teaching methods, German literature and educational psychology. Studying abroad may be helpful for refining language skills and understanding German culture. Graduates, more often than not, go on to teach at the secondary level. Completing a graduate degree program, however, can lead to teaching jobs at the collegiate level.

Teaching German requires proficiency in the language as well as a concentrated knowledge of German culture. Teachers must have excellent communication and motivational skills, and they must be able to work effectively with students, parents and other faculty and staff.
