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.
