SZENE Annual - Journal for Teachers of German

The Association of German Teachers of Victoria Inc. (AGTV) has published the teachers' journal SZENE since 1980.

NEW in 2016: From 2016, only one printed issue will be published. This SZENE Annual is expected to be published in early Term 2. Contributions from throughout Australia will be included in the SZENE Annual including reports from the Network of Australian Teachers of German (NATG).

NEW eMags: The AGTV Committee will produce at least two eMags in a format TBC. The AGTV requires an email address to which to forward the link or eMags.


The AGTV is grateful to the South Australian German Teachers Association (SAGTA) for their support for SZENE, as well as other subscribers from interstate and, of course, AGTV members. We thank Goethe-Institut Australia for contributing funding towards its publication.

Role and History of SZENE

The first issue of SZENE was published by the AGTV in 1980, an initiative of both the AGTV and the Goethe-Institut in Melbourne.

SZENE informs, unites and inspires teachers of German. SZENE promotes the sharing of ideas and resources between teachers across Australia. We consistently receive positive feedback from subscribers.

The name was the brainchild of Rolf Klieme from the Goethe-Institut in Melbourne and Life Member of the AGTV. He explained in the first issue:

„Weder ein deutsches Wort noch ein englisches, sondern ein internationals. Der Name soll bezeichnend sein für unser Programm: das Wort hat verschiedene Bedeutungen, viele Seiten und Aspekte des Gebrauchs. Und so soll SZENE sein: vielseitig und vieldeutig, kurz, interessant genug zum Nachdenken und Mitdiskutieren.“
