ÄDK Teaching Diploma

The art of teaching is something we have mastered throughout the long years of working in this field. We do believe that for someone to teach German, he needs more than a good command of the German language.A knowledge into the techniques and art of teaching and its methodologies, are what makes unique teachers distinct.
