The German Language Center (GLC) at the German Jordanian University held an award ceremony on Wednesday, 15th of November 2023, to honor the efforts and support of 48 student teaching assistants during the German I pre-course.


This intensive German pre-course, held between the 10th of September and the 8th of October 2023, saw the participation of 750 GJU freshmen who began their studies at the GJU in academic year 2023/24. 48 German-as-a-Foreign-Language lecturers from the GJU's own German Language Center taught the pre-course and succeeded in teaching the participants to conduct their first small dialogues in German or even act out German songs and rhymes within only two weeks. Not least, they fostered awareness for the GJU’s German dimension from the early stages.


48 dedicated students from the advanced German courses actively supported the pre-course, each accompanying one of the pre-course’s 39 section. They gave the newly enrolled participants valuable tips on how to successfully combine the acquisition of German as a foreign language with their demanding degree studies. Moreover, they introduced the new students to the GJU’s institutions and life at the university campus in Madaba. One particular highlight was the communal welcome breakfast.


In recognition of their commendable dedication, Awny Al-Shishani, the student coordinator of the teaching assistant programme, and his team of volunteers received certificates of appreciation in the presence of GLC director Jacqueline Rogler, German I coordinator Silvie Zeller and long-standing lecturer Daad Nazzal. The students' commitment greatly contributed to the success of the pre-course.
