Most exchanges to Germany are at the secondary level. Elementary is possible and there are usually elementary German applicants but fluency in German is usually necessary at that level. Applicants must have a good working knowledge of German in order to function in the German school, even for ESL positions. If a subject area is to be considered, the Canadian candidate must be fluent in German. The German teacher will be fluent in English.
Note: Since we have few candidates who meet these requirements, the exchange authorities will recruit to find a match for a Canadian applicant. Therefore, it is essential that we receive requests for Germany early in the fall. We suggest teachers considering a German exchange contact the CEEF office for details.
