Advent Calendar | Christmas Markets | Starting Dates 2011 | 40th Anniversary | Students' Corner
Dear Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

In December, one of the most beautiful times of the year begins in Germany: Christmastime. The cities are lit up in Christmas radiance, homes are festively decorated with Advent wreaths and people are nestled in together with friends and family for the holiday season. The long wait until Christmas time, until Christmas eve, is difficult, especially for little children, because it’s not until Christmas eve that all those wonderful gifts under the Christmas tree can be unwrapped.

did deutsch-institut Advent Calendar 2010Traditionally, this long pe­ri­od of wait­ing is alleviated by the Advent Calendar – a calendar that starts with the 1st of De­cem­ber and ends with the 24th. The Advent Ca­lendar con­tains 24 little doors, each door concealing little sur­pris­es, one for each day in December.

With our own version of the Advent Calendar we would like to heighten the anti­ci­pa­tion up to Christmas as well and have hidden special surprises behind each door: complementary weeks, price reductions, cost-free upgrades… just to name a few of the Advent gift certificates avail­able. If you would like to be­ne­fit from a particular offer you must decide quickly, because each offer is only good on the day it is un­cov­ered. That means in December: Discover each day what is hidden behind the door for you…

Another pleasant way to pass the time before Christmas is to wander through the many cheer­ful­ly deco­rat­ed Christmas markets, enjoying the roasted almonds, tasty gingerbread and delicious Christmas cookies – another important aspect of German culture. Because the institutes in Ber­lin, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich are centrally located, did deutsch-institut offers an ideal opportunity to learn German and simulta­neously discover the most beautiful Christmas markets in the country.

did deutsch-institut wishes you a merry Christmas and a successful New Year in 2011!

Madame Tussauds

You only turn 40 once – reason enough for a special birthday celebration! Every­body that is anybody was there: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt und Angelina Jolie, Ni­cole Kidman, Robbie Williams... Admittedly: The stars were already present at Madame Tussauds – our friends and partners, on the other hand, were at the ICEF Berlin Work­shop. Together we cele­bra­ted the 40th anniversary of our company in the famous wax museum and experi­enced an unforgettable evening.

Why Berlin?

Francisco from Spain: „Today, Berlin is the unofficial capital city of Europe. Art, cul­ture and the history of yes­terday com­bine together here in Berlin with the trends of today like no­where else. I especially like the spirit of the city, the people, the vari­ety and the opportunity to find anything you are looking for. I am very satisfied with did deutsch-institut – because of the great atmos­phere and be­cause of the professional­ism and per­so­nal quality of the teach­ing staff.” Read more
