The practicum courses which combine theoretical knowledge and practice are of great importance for teacher education. Mentor teachers have a significant role in the effectiveness of practicum. This study aims to investigate the German language mentor teachers’ competencies and validate them. To achieve this aim, a three-step Delphi technique was designed. The first step is for defining the competencies by means of open ended questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. This step consists of data collected from the experts, senior pre-service teachers and teacher trainers at universities. In the second step, a likert questionnaire is developed by using the previous findings and then it is sent to the expert group to be evaluated and to get their comments. In this second step, in order to see the agreement among experts, first quarter, last quarter, median, and range values for expert evaluations are calculated by means of descriptive statistics. In the last step, the questionnaire is sent to experts once again together with the statistical results specific for each item. In this step, the experts are required to revise their answers and finalize their decisions. Both qualitative and statistical data analysis techniques are used in the study. Reliability for the qualitative data is ensured through inter-rater reliability analysis. At the end of this study, 47 competence items that German teaching mentors should have are created. The competencies at hand are presented as a guide for selecting and training qualified mentor teachers in the process of pre-service German teachers’ practicum.
