Placement Test

Do you have previous knowledge of German? If you do, you are required to take a Placement Test that will allow us to determine the best place for you to start studying German at the UofT. Depending on your level of proficiency – perhaps you have lived or studied in Germany, have spoken some German at home, or taken high school German – you may be able to place out of introductory courses and begin taking intermediate and advanced language, literature, and culture offerings right away. This will not only allow you to get the most out of your university studies but also help our instructors to focus on students who are learning German from scratch. Please note: You are required to take the test if you have had any previous exposure to German. Self-placement is not permitted and will result in removal from the course. To schedule a placement test please contact our Undergraduate Assistant, Gayle Grisdale. You will then be sent a Quercus invitation to take the test, together with detailed instructions. The test itself will take about 30 minutes to complete. You will be informed about the result within a couple of days through the Grades feature ... Read More »

Viele von uns haben sich auf das neue Unterrichtsmedium eingestellt und finden täglich neue Wege und Mittel (oder auch Apps), um unseren Unterricht nicht nur abwechslungsreich, sondern auch so lernerzentriert wie möglich zu gestalten. Dennoch gibt es immer wieder Fragen zum digitalen Unterricht, bei deren Beantwortung wir vom Goethe-Institut  Sie gerne unterstützen wollen. Von technischen Fragen wie “Wie mache ich einen Screenshot?” bis hin zu der Frage “Wie binde ich meine Lerner stärker in den Unterricht ein?” beantworten wir gerne ihre Fragen in unser virtuellen Sprechstunde für Lehrkräfte.Dear Colleagues, It has been a few month since we  had to take all our classrooms online. Most of us have adapted to the new format, ... Read More »
