South Australian German Teachers Association


The South Australian German Teachers Association (SAGTA) is a professional association of German teachers in all levels of education – primary, secondary and tertiary – who have banded together for the benefit of their students and to promote the study of German language in South Australia.

The SAGTA Committee meets once a month to discuss, develop and plan activities and strategies to help German teachers and students in South Australia.

We warmly welcome new members, so that we can continue this valuable work.
