Deutschberater: Supporting teachers, schools, and learners of German across the USA!
The network of German Language Consultants (Deutschberater) support the teaching and learning of German in the U.S. They support German programs at U.S. schools and collaborate with educational and training agencies, professional associations and schools.
The German Language Consultants of the Central Agency for Schools Abroad and Goethe-Institut maintain close ties with German teachers and the German-as-a-foreign-language community, and also with educational administrators and authorities in their respective regions. They consult public schools with German programs in their regions, and also schools with enhanced German programs, i.e. Saturday-, vocational-, and language immersion schools. They offer guidance and support schools and teachers to introduce new German programs and strengthen existing ones. They offer continuing education in relevant subject areas as well as in teaching technique.
