TEACH GERMAN Day College/University Activities

Get ready for the 2017 National TEACH GERMAN Day celebration on October 4! There are several ways for you to get involved on National TEACH GERMAN Day. Check back to discover new activities and materials we'll release throughout the summer and fall.

Ideas for college/university students

  • Have German students write a letter to their high school principal, superintendent, or other administrator thanking them for having a German program and talking about how their German teacher has influenced their lives.
  • Encourage your student German organization(s) to enter the TEACH GERMAN Day video contest.
  • Set up a booth in an area of campus where the German program might not be as widely recognized and pass out literature about being a German teacher/learning German
  • Play "Are You Smarter than your German Teacher?, Teach German Feud, Think Like Your German Teacher, or Teach German Cash Bus"
  • Create a German education major mentoring program with new students and junior/senior German education majors
  • Host a National TEACH GERMAN Day event.
  • Contact local high school German programs and ask if you can be part of the National TEACH GERMAN Day celebration in their school
  • Organize an afternoon or evening Stammtisch event at a café or restaurant where students in the lower levels can meet up with students in the upper levels and speak German
  • Invite high school German students to visit classes
  • Inform students of special programs, exchanges, and placement opportunities
  • Send students to local and regional high schools, junior highs, or middle schools to promote German
  • Coordinate visits to companies that are German or have affiliations with German-speaking countries
