NGE Advisors

The National German Exam (NGE) is a test given annually to more than 15,000 high school students of German across the United States and internationally. The NGE is not meant to be a proficiency assessment, but rather an opportunity for students to receive reinforcement and recognition for their accomplishments in the German classroom. Depending upon their score, students can earn certificates, medals, cash prizes, and may even qualify for a scholarship for summer study in Germany. 

NGE Advisors are committee members and veteran NGE teachers and strong supporters of the program who volunteer to speak with new or unfamiliar teachers about administering the NGE. Teachers who have expressed interest in administering the NGE will be put in contact with an NGE Advisor and would be responsible for initiating a phone meeting with the NGE Advisor. Advisors can shed light on what it's like to administer the exam, how to prepare students to take the test, and how to use the NGE as promotion for the local German program.

Please note that NGE Advisors are volunteers, not employees of AATG or Lingco. NGE Advisors cannot answer technical or logistical questions such as Lingco platform, exam logistic, or scholarship questions.
