Valentine’s Special | Berlin Summer Academy | Carnival | 4,000 Facebook fans | Students’ Corner
Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

So, you are under the impression that there are only four seasons in Germany? Well, that isn’t exactly true – in many parts of our country there is actually a fifth season: Carnival, which, de­pend­ing on the re­gion, is also called Fastnacht or Fasching. Those who experience this season here will think dif­fer­ent­ly about Ger­man ca­pri­cious­ness and will be amazed how light-hearted and robustly the Ger­mans can actually celebrate. Learn more about this in our article about Carnival.

Valentine’s Special Heads up! With our Valentine’s Special on the 14th and 15th of February your Valentine can save 50% on the cost of a course of up to four weeks in length! And here is how: Book a German language course in one of our institutes in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg or Munich. If your Valentine books a course with the same con­fig­u­ra­tion, in other words, the lo­ca­tion, length and type of course are all identical, he or she will receive a 50% dis­count on his or her booking.

Is the Carnival season a little too early for you for a language holiday in Germany? How would it be then, if you signed up for our Berlin Summer Academy, during which time you will have the chance to get to know the sights and, above all, the spectacular nightlife of the capital city? And you won’t have to worry about getting out of bed early the next morning. Your German language course won’t start until after noon – a nice, relaxing start to the day is guaranteed!

of carnival

In certain cities in Ger­ma­ny be­tween Fat Thurs­day and Ash Wed­nes­day – in other words, be­tween Feb­ru­ary 7th and Feb­ru­ary 13th – a state of fri­vol­ity and mer­ri­ment rules. On Feb­ru­ary 11th, the Shrove Mon­day pa­rades in the tra­di­tion rich ci­ties of Mainz and Co­logne serve as a cli­max for these play­ful days. Both ci­ties are easi­ly reached by train from the did deutsch-ins­ti­tut Frank­furt – Mainz in 40 minutes and Co­logne in 60. There is also a pa­rade in Frank­furt on Sun­day, Feb­ru­ary 10, 2013. Find out here where all the par­ties take place in and around Frank­furt.

Why Berlin?

Andreas from Cyprus: “I would like to study med­i­cine at a Ger­man uni­ver­si­ty. I grad­u­ated from prep school in Cy­prus and am now pre­par­ing for the Test-DaF, which I need for en­trance into the Ger­man uni­ver­sity sys­tem. Ber­lin was the right choice for me – every­thing is pos­si­ble here! The best thing is sim­ply wan­der­ing through the city and en­joy­ing the at­mos­phere, the many dif­fer­ent plazas and the cul­ture of the city. A true high­light for me was the Christ­mas mar­ket on the Kur­fürs­ten­damm (street). Ty­pi­cal Ger­man? Se­ri­ous by day, wild by night.” Read more
