The Ontario High School German Contest is an important annual tradition and is one of our province’s most prestigious events celebrating International Languages. Every year, dozens of students from across Ontario gather to demonstrate their knowledge of German language and culture through listening, reading, writing and speaking activities.
Great prizes await our winners in our three categories:
Gruppe A: I have no academic experience with the German language outside of the current school year’s course; I have no additional, significant exposure to the language through family, community or other enrichment opportunities; I have not spent more than 3 weeks in a German-speaking country at any time since January 1st, 2019.
Gruppe B: I have 1-4 academic years of study of German in classroom settings; I have no additional, significant exposure to the language through family, community or other enrichment opportunities; I have not spent more than 3 weeks in a German-speaking country at any time since January 1st, 2019.
Gruppe C/D: I have additional experience beyond the day school/credit program classroom via Sprachschule, school exchanges, study-abroad programs, and/or travel in German-speaking countries, OR I have considerable exposure to German because of extensive contact with German-speaking family and community members.
