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.“
