Nationalfeiertag 3.Oktober Interview with Director of Studies Berlin, Stefan Schenck Students' Corner
21 years of
German Unification

On October 3, 1990, the Ger­man Demo­cra­tic Re­pub­lic (GDR) off­icia­lly joined the Fe­der­al Re­pub­lic of Ger­many (West Ger­many). The open­ing of the Ber­lin Wall on No­vem­ber 9, 1989 was the de­ter­min­ing fac­tor in this re­uni­fi­ca­tion and was a mile­stone in the his­tory of Ger­ma­ny. The fall of the wall caused the even­tual dis­in­te­gra­tion of the GDR and re­sul­ted in re­uni­fy­ing a coun­try that had been di­vi­ded since 1961. The motto of the offi­cial cele­bra­tion of the na­tio­nal ho­li­day taking place in Bonn this year is Free­dom, Unity, Joy.
Berlin’s Director
of Studies reports

Stefan Schenck has worked at the did deutsch–institut Berlin as Di­rec­tor of Studies since May 2011. He is re­por­ting on his first im­pres­sions. Af­ter study­ing lin­guis­tics and Ger­man as a fo­reign lan­guage, for one year he worked at a uni­versity in Shang­hai, Chi­na. Af­ter that, he taught three years in a re­si­den­tial school in All­gäu and most re­cent­ly taught adult lan­guage cour­ses in Con­stance. “What I find best is I al­ways have new tasks and also have the oppor­tuni­ty to meet dif­fer­ent people from all parts of the world.” Read more
Students' Corner
Why Berlin?

Jiri Madl, actor from the Czech Re­pub­lic: “I knew Ber­lin al­rea­dy and liked it a lot. I have al­ready lived in New York. There are many nationa­li­ties there and many lan­gua­ges – it is si­mi­lar in Ber­lin. In addi­tion, the in­ter­es­ting his­tory of east and west really appeals to me. At the pre­sent time, Ber­lin is the cen­ter of Eu­ro­pe for ar­tists. I really like to go to Kreuz­berg. I am not as in­ter­es­ted in the ty­pi­cal tou­rist attrac­tions as I am in nor­mal, every­day life. Of course, you defi­nite­ly have to eat a curry­wurst when you are in Ber­lin!” Read more
