Germany grants EUR 750,000 for German language study in Romania

Germany has committed to donating EUR 753,000 in support of German language teachers in Romania through a program intended to promote German as a mother tongue in state schools and other learning centers in the country, reports Romania Insider.

The funds will reduce the deficit of qualified German language teachers by motivating young German speakers to pursue a teaching career. The young teachers will receive training through periodic courses.

The money will also be used to provide modern textbooks in German to Romanian students who want to learn German at a native level.

The project is implemented by the Saxonia Foundation in Brașov county. The 2011 census showed that roughly 36,000 ethnic Germans lived in the county.
