SEMINARS OF THE GOETHE INSTITUT
“Goethe Institut” offers various seminars for German language teachers. Anything that you can imagine is there. You can browse through their current offer for 2016 here. I am interested in seminars which refer to the learning at a (very) early age. But it seems that I am too late because the application deadline for all seminars in 2016 was on December 31, 2015. However, if there are some free places left, teachers can still apply. Note to self: you can even apply for a grant. Mark that down and try the next year. More about grants (or normal applications) can be found here.
