What are the benefits for the German participants?

You will take part in a hands-on (!) intercultural communication course throughout the semester.


You will improve your language skills and participate in intercultural exchange with your partner.


By taking part, you will show that you are interested in intercultural interaction which will look especially good on your resume or CV.


After successful completion of this project, you can get a class certificate („Schein“) with 4 Credits in English.


You will have the opportunity to develop an international network, which might be extremely helpful if you are planning to study a semester in North America.


And last but not least, you will be helping an international student feel more welcome and more comfortable in Germany.

What does this program look like?

  • First, all students who would like to take part fill in a questionnaire which asks about what you’re studying and what you do in your free time. 
  • Everybody meets at the welcome meeting.
  • Throughout the semester, all participants take part in a weekly intercultural communication course.
  • In the weekly tandem meetings, the tandem partners discuss tasks set in the communication course, improve their language skills and reflect on intercultural issues.
  • The German student takes the American student along to as many activities as possible.
