As part of the DAAD Cairo Academy (DKA), the DAAD Regional Office Cairo organized two special modules on 21st and 22nd of July 2019 on the topic of "German as a Foreign Language".

Both modules were led by a German-Egyptian team of trainers: Prof. Christian Krekeler, Professor of "German as a Foreign and Technical Language" at the University of Konstanz and Prof. Tarik Bary, Professor of Terminology and Translation at the Ain Shams University Cairo. The professors gave the participants new impulses for teaching German as a Foreign Language in the context of disciplines like natural sciences and engineering.

Main topics of the workshops were methodical principles and planning methods of teaching German as a technical language. They focused on the subjects of economics, engineering and medicine, where the demand for study-related German lessons is particularly high.

In the practical part of the workshops the participants discussed didactic questions and tested the presented methods of teaching German as a foreign language in the mentioned fields of engineering and medicine.
