German Day Out at the University of Adelaide

11 May 2022

Our Year 11 and 12 German students had the opportunity to network with other students of German, meet and hear from members of the German University Club, and take part in engaging workshops featuring creative grammar, games, theatre, and language activities. They finished the day with a group Kahoot quiz and viewed a German film. Morning tea and lunch were a highlight, with German schnitzel sandwiches and pretzels as particular favourites. Two of our Year 12 students won the Kahoot quiz against all participants from other schools and took home a prize.

German is the most widely spoken mother tongue in Europa because it is the official language of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. The University of Adelaide offers German studies as an elective or core course and works with the German Academic Exchange Service to carry out scholarships German institutions offer for outstanding students worldwide. These programs range from short-term exchanges for research or teaching purposes or doctoral scholarships lasting several years. They are available to undergraduate students, advanced students, young higher education graduates, and academics from all science and humanities fields, inclusive of music and art.
