For several years, the number of teacher students in German has dropped sharply in Sweden. At the same time, many German teachers are retiring or changing profession. For in-service German teachers there are so far only few chances for in-service teacher training, which could also be explained by the low status of foreign languages in the Swedish education system. At the same time, a huge shortage of teachers is already recognizable, which will only increase in near future. In this article, we take a close look at the language teacher education in Sweden. We examine the question of which areas of friction exist between the various scientific disciplines such as education, German studies, language didactics and practical training, involved in the German teacher education. What are the reasons for the lack of teachers in Swedish schools, and what measures can lead to securing a sustainable German teacher's competence?
