Dear readers,
As so often, it started small: At the beginning of the collaboration between the
Goethe-Institut New Delhi and the Indira Gandhi National Open University
(IGNOU) stood for the establishment of a joint distance learning course

German lessons in secondary school as an essential common
Has feature. A brilliant success story, but with one
Hook: Since there have been virtually no German lessons in India's schools so far
there was a shortage of teachers, because of course the universities also formed
of the country does not recommend any foreign language teachers. This situation resulted now
fortunately the right people together at the right time: the
IGNOU with the intention of expanding its offer for foreign language teacher training

Prof. Hans-Jrgen Krumm from the University of Vienna, whose long-time
Solidarity with Indian German studies and profound expertise in
teacher training made him the ideal third partner in the league.

What does IGNOU's German teacher training program do?


especially? An interview with Prof. Hans-Jrgen Krumm from

German studies at the University of Vienna
The Diploma in Teaching German as a Foreign
Language (DTG) was set up as a cooperation project
between the Goethe-Institut New Delhi, the
University of Vienna and the Indira Gandhi National
Open University (IGNOU) started. How are
did these contacts come about?
Prof. Hans-Jrgen Krumm: In the beginning there was one

The IGNOU has a large educational program, courses, Bachelor of Education and others.
Initially, the Goethe-Institut cooperated with
Indian universities started offering courses for the

I was involved in a project of the
Goethe Institute and the intermediary organizations of
France, Italy, Spain and Portugal with the Delhi
University involved to set up a foreign language teacher training course there. Delhi University
however only produces about five German teachers per year.
With a requirement of 10,000 it is very clear that the
Indian universities that with a direct degree
not make it. This means that people who are not suitably qualified also teach.
In this respect, the cooperation in the IGNOU German teacher training is based on a happy meeting: the Goethe-Institut was and is on

interested in qualifying German teachers


and realized that you can do that with further training
Can't do it alone, because there is no basic training that you can build on. Man

So the idea was obvious, as is the case in Germany
after the war when there was a shortage of teachers to offer shorter programs with basic qualifications. That is exactly what happened with
the educational standards of the IGNOU, not necessarily one

society needs to provide as quickly as possible.

And then the three of us sat down, that

Prof. Hans-Jrgen Krumm: The Diploma in Teaching
