Associations for Teachers of German in Schools Around the World

We share common goals with these associations in promoting the learners of languages to speakers of  English as a First Language, and in countries where the advocacy to support for the learning of languages needs constant attention.

Tertiary Associations

An association for academics was founded in 2000 in order to promote the teaching and research in German Studies at the tertiary level.


The membership of the National Council of State Supervisors for Languages* (NCSSFL) in the USA envisions a nation in which all individuals will be prepared for the demands of an interdependent world by attaining competence in more than one language and culture. [

It is interesting to note that the term 'Foreign Languages' in the description of the NCSSFL on the website has been replaced with 'Languages'. This reflects the recognition that many languages are spoken and used n the USA.]

The Association for Language Learning (ALL) is the UK's major subject association for the teaching of languages

The Oxford German Network has dedicated to productive cross-cultural cooperation involving schools, cultural organisations, businesses, and policy-makers. They were connected with the successful 'Think German' campaign in the UK.
