German for teachers...
and school staff from abroad
Our programme attaches great importance to sustainability in the training of teachers and school staff from abroad. In addition to standardized German language courses for the participants, dialoge also offers tailor-made methodology courses and the opportunity to attend German schools.
Participants are therefore given the appropriate tools to apply different learning methods at schools in their home country.
This program is eligible under Erasmus+.
The courses are especially tailored for teachers and school staff from abroad and are focused on language and/or methodology. There is also the possibility of a school attachment in a German partner school (secondary, primary or Montessori school).
