German Branch

German Branch

The German Branch consists of members who teach German at schools around Queensland across primary, secondary & tertiary levels and in both state and private educational institutions.

Our purpose is to:
• provide peer support and professional development for teachers of German
• coordinate language events for learners of German
• develop and maintain links with partner organisations
• promote the benefits of learning German.

One of our major partnerships is with the Goethe Institut, who support us through professional development and assist with some of our student events.

If you wish to contact the German branch, please send a query to the president via an Enquiry form in the Contacts Section..
