FAQs - Frequently asked questions

Since the 16 German Bundesländer have different school systems, there is no definite answer to this question. As a rule, teachers in German public schools need two subjects, although - due to the current shortage of teachers - there seems to be some flexibility. Many E-LINGO alumni have found jobs in private primary schools and pre-schools, a sector that is steadily growing in Germany.

Yes, you can! We now offer E-Lingo to be completed fully online.

The E-LINGO Masters degree is fully accredited and Bologna compatible, which means that it is recognised across Europe and respected worldwide.
