Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

It's true, the days are short­er and it's get­ting dark earli­er, but that is cer­tainly no reas­on to stay at home. Quite the op­pos­ite, in fact! Those who come to Ger­many dur­ing the ad­vent sea­son should ab­so­lutely not miss the chance to vis­it a typ­ic­al Ger­man Christ­mas mar­ket. The sweet fra­grances of ginger­bread, roas­ted al­monds and hot chest­nuts in the air serve to height­en the an­ti­cip­a­tion of Christ­mas tre­mend­ously.

Advent calendar 2014 In or­der to pass the time and make wait­ing for Christ­mas a little easi­er, you can open one of the little doors in our ad­vent cal­en­dar every day from Decem­ber 1 - 24 to dis­cov­er a spe­cial sur­prise.

Be­cause be­hind each little door a won­der­ful sur­prise is hid­ing – for ex­ample, a gift cer­ti­fic­ate for free weeks of in­struc­tion, price re­duc­tions, free course up­grades in our in­sti­tutes in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg or Mu­nich, and much more! Each un­covered gift cer­ti­fic­ate is re­deem­able only on that one day, so you shouldn’t let a single day go by without check­ing what is hid­ing be­hind the little doors!

Christmas Markets in Germany
Starting dates in 2015 Na­tion Brands In­dex Students' Corner
Course dates for
beginners in 2015

So that you can be­ne­fit op­tim­ally from your Ger­man course right from the very start, we are once again in 2015 of­fer­ing special be­gin­ning dates for ab­so­lute be­gin­ners. Course par­ti­cipants who already pos­sess some know­ledge of Ger­man can be­gin every Monday in our year-round in­sti­tutes in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg or Mu­nich. A place­ment test is giv­en on the first day of every course, after which par­ti­cipants are placed into the ap­pro­pri­ate level. In this way, we guar­an­tee you will be placed in the highest course level pos­sible.
Germany's good
image in the world

Ger­many is top-notch – at least in the eyes of oth­ers. No coun­try in the world had a bet­ter image in the fall of 2014. In the cur­rent Na­tion Brands In­dex (NBI) the Ger­mans even over­took the Amer­ic­ans. This year, in a field of 50 na­tions, Ger­many oc­cu­pies the top spot, followed by the US and Great Britain. Be­cause of its eco­nom­ic strength and polit­ic­al sta­bil­ity, but also be­cause of its sport­ing ac­com­plish­ments, for ex­ample, the Football World Cup vic­tory in Brazil, the coun­try emerged as the win­ner in an in­ter­na­tion­al sur­vey of over 20,000 people.
Students' Corner
Why Hamburg?

Anastasia from Ukraine: "Why do I want to learn Ger­man? I wanted to get to know a ma­jor European cul­ture and to be able to com­mu­nic­ate with a lot of people. Be­sides, I need Ger­man for my uni­versity stud­ies. I de­cided on this school, be­cause the ac­co­mod­a­tion isn’t far away, the course start times are flex­ible, the cur­riculum is good and the fa­cil­it­ies are nicely ap­poin­ted. I vis­ited Ham­burg once be­fore and really liked it. It's a beau­ti­ful city and you should def­in­itely take a tour around lake Al­ster which is next to the school" Read more
