Helau Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

This, or something sim­il­ar, is the greet­ing you will hear in many areas in Ger­many dur­ing the time of Mardi Gras, which, de­pend­ing on the re­gion, is also called Karnev­al, Fast­nacht or Fasching. Dur­ing this clown-like sea­son, the cus­tom of wear­ing masks and cos­tumes to ban­ish the cold winter re­turns. Those who ex­per­i­ence these crazy days dur­ing a lan­guage course at did deutsch-in­sti­tut, will be amazed by how cheer­fully and bois­ter­ously they are cel­eb­rated in Ger­many.

Would you like to ex­per­i­ence this crazy cel­eb­ra­tion live? Then it would be best for you to at­tend a lan­guage course at did deutsch-in­sti­tut Frank­furt. From Frank­furt, by train you can quickly and com­fort­ably reach both of the largest Ger­man Mardi Gras strong­holds, Mainz and Co­logne, in less than an hour. And of course, you won’t have to ne­go­ti­ate this ex­per­i­ence en­tirely alone – our leis­ure activ­ity ad­visors plan these types of ex­cur­sions for all of our course par­ti­cipants.

Is Mardi Gras a bit too early in the year for you to make a lan­guage trip to Ger­many? How would it be, then, to at­tend our Ber­lin Sum­mer Academy in­stead? You can get to know the sights and sounds of the cap­it­al city while learn­ing the lan­guage at the same time, and of course, can ex­per­i­ence the spec­tac­u­lar night­life. And after a late night, you won’t have to worry about get­ting out of bed early the next morn­ing. Classes are held in the af­ter­noon – a re­lax­ing start to the day is guar­an­teed.

Courses for
German Teachers

Our pro­gram Ger­man for Teach­ers of­fers the rare op­por­tun­ity to ex­per­i­ence Ger­man class from the stu­dent per­spect­ive while at the same time learn­ing about the new­est trends in teach­ing Ger­man. The course con­sists of three learn­ing phases. You study Ger­man as a learner, ob­serv­er, and re­flect­ive prac­ti­tion­er. While im­prov­ing your Ger­man know­ledge and skills, you re­flect on your own teach­ing meth­ods dur­ing ob­ser­va­tions and dis­cus­sions with our lec­tur­ers. Read more

Why Berlin?

Olga from Switzer­land: “I was once here be­fore learn­ing Ger­man at did deutsch-in­sti­tut Ber­lin and really liked it. This time I wanted to do an in­tern­ship in ad­di­tion to tak­ing Ger­man courses. Of course I wanted to im­prove my Ger­man, but also wanted to see how the in­sti­tute is or­gan­ized and how it func­tions. I learned a lot about the or­gan­iz­a­tion and my Ger­man also im­proved. Ber­lin is a friendly, com­fort­able city and I can really ima­gine my­self work­ing here.” Read more
