German - A Language of Opportunities

About GermanConnects

German Connects is a programme of events and activities designed to foster the learning of the German language throughout Ireland.
An initiative by the German Embassy and the Goethe-Institut Irland and developed in close association with the Austrian and Swiss embassies in Dublin, key Irish educational institutions and business organizations, German Connects is designed to encourage a greater number of Irish pupils and students to choose to learn German as part of their education.
German Connects seeks to highlight why German is an important modern language which is worth learning and which will prove beneficial to all "would-be" German speakers.
The German Connects website is designed to be a hub for information about learning German, German language activities (from local events to exchange programmes) and a link to German language resources.
