Katharina Tremmel works as a Test Development Specialist at the Luxembourg Centre for Educational Testing (LUCET) where she is responsible for developing German reading and listening comprehension tests (3rd and 5th grade) as part of the Luxembourg school monitoring programme Épreuves Standardisées (ÉpStan). 

Her undergraduate studies in Comparative European Ethnology and Comparative and General Linguistics were completed in 2014 at the University of Regensburg in Germany and at the University of Kanazawa in Japan (金沢大学). 

At the University of Regensburg, she also completed a teacher training course for German as a Foreign Language.

In 2015, she was granted permission to teach German as a Foreign Language in an academic context in Mexico, after successfully passing the exam for Foreign Language Teachers of the Special Board of Languages (COEL) at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).

She completed her master's program in Applied Linguistics at the National Autonomous University of México with honors in 2018.

Katharina's academic studies were complemented by work experience in the field of German as a Foreign Language: She worked at the University of Kanazawa, the Goethe Institute in Mexico, and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México as a Language Teacher for German as a Foreign Language. In Mexico, while teaching German and German phonetics and phonology, she earned her certifications for two internationally recognized language exams: the Goethe-Zertifkat (A1-C2) and ÖSD-Zertifkat (A1-C1).
