The aim of the International German Olympics (IDO) is to promote learning of the German language, to strengthen mutual understanding and tolerance, and to introduce to the participants the science and culture of Germany.


The International German Olympics (IDO), held biennially in Germany, is the world's largest competition for the German language. It is organized by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the International Association of German Teachers (IDV).


The top two participants from Turkey, who have passed the national pre-qualifications in A2 or B1 language levels, will qualify for the International German Olympics to be held in Hamburg between 3-7 August 2022 under the sponsorship of Goethe-Institut.


Encouraged by TAC’s German teachers, 11th grader Cem Yıldız joined the B1 level Olympics.


The Olympics consists of two stages and Cem, who passed the first stage as one of the 16 participants out of 43, will take a German exam on April 9 when the final stage will be held.

We wish Cem good luck at this stage of his participation.

Celebrating TAC Community Service through Music, Dance and Art



Traditional community service events of TAC have thankfully returned to campus with all its energy. We involved the young guests who we hosted on Wednesdays this week in a series of dance, art and music activities. They were introduced to Ponte the puppet in the rhythm workshop. In the German, French and Spanish workshops, they learned about colors and basic greetings. In the games, they enjoyed working in cooperation and a light competition. By the end of the dance workshop they were tired, but have learned the importance of moving in sync and both hosts and the guests had a chance to rest while chatting and eating the delicious waffles prepared by the Second Foreign Language department and served by 11-IB CAS students. We thank everyone who contributed to this meaningful service activity which is one of the distinguishing qualities of TAC.
