China has an objective demand for German language talents. As one of the suppliers of German language talents, the German language programs offered by such universities account for one-third of the German language programs in all universities in China. However, the German language undergraduate program in “Double Non” local universities is facing many practical difficulties: the positioning of the program is inaccurate, the construction of the teaching staff is difficult, the practical teaching system is incomplete, and the talent output situation is unideal. The main reason for the above-mentioned difficulties is the inaccurate positioning of the German language programs, while an accurate positioning can not only provide a healthy development for both “Double Non” and “Double First Class” universities and avoid ineffective competitions, but also break the fatalistic stance and find an effective path for German language programs in “Double Non” local universities to break the limitations of unfavorable status and achieve overtaking. The overall idea of the solution is to develop an applied German undergraduate program. Specific practical measures include collaborating with universities in German-speaking areas to carry out a “3+2” undergraduate and master's degree comprehensive training, building a “German talent alliance” with external partners, and using modern information technology to overcome the difficulties in education, teaching, and recruiting.
