This is what we offer for international students of the university who would like to improve their German language skills.
What is so foreign about other cultures, and how do we Germans actually come across to others? How do misunderstandings arise and how do we deal with them? How does cooperation work in international teams? How do I apply for a job in Germany? Our workshops and projects on intercultural communication are centred around questions along these lines.
Fancy meeting new people from all over the world while speaking your favourite language? Then the IfF's Language Café is the place to be! It offers international and German students and university staff once a month the opportunity to practise speaking German, English, French, Spanish or Italian in a relaxed atmosphere.
Dates in the summer semester:
25/03, 27/05 and 24/06; 6 – 7.30 pm in the Students Hut by ekhg (Pestalozzistr. 52) & 18/04; 2 - 3:30 pm in the auditorium (building 6, 1st floor)
Come and join us - we are looking forward to meeting you!
Thank you for the opportunity to study German and the perfect teachers we had! Thanks to them, I now love studying German and communicating in everyday siutations.
The intensive course was such a good way to learn German and at the same time introduce myself to the university and meet people. Thank you so much!
I am glad that the university offers intensive courses because this allows international students to meet and that is really great! The teachers are nice, and we worked in a great atmosphere and learned so many things! The excursions were interesting and fun; we had a great time during these two weeks.
I would like to thank you for your great offers! I got a nice tandem during my studies. Thank you also for the competent writing advice during my Bachelor's and Master's thesis. It has brought me a lot further!

The language café was super fun in the nice atmosphere. Besides the opportunity to meet new people, we also gained valuable knowledge about German culture and tried out some delicious German cuisine! Thank you very much for your organisation, the exciting games and the great snacks.
