MLTAQ German Branch
Are you a teacher of the German language? The branch consists of members who teach at schools across primary, secondary and tertiary levels, and in both state & non-state settings.
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.
The MLTAQ has a corporate Zoom subscription so we can network with you no matter where you live!
