The International German Olympics provides a platform for students from all over the world to demonstrate their German language ability: they design a wall newspaper, work together on a presentation or participate in a German quiz. Above all, they have a great deal of fun, make new friends and meet up together in and with the German language. The International German Olympics are organized by the Goethe Institute in cooperation with the International German Teacher’s Association.
The preliminaries for the Province of Maluku were held on November 17, 2015 at the Pattimura University in Ambon, Indonesia. Over 60 eleventh graders from throughout the province competed for the first place there. In the end, all three who placed first, second and third in the regional competition came from the same school: three students from the SIWALIMA Boarding School in Ambon proved to be the best of the region.

Vendégünk: Sebestény Anikó antropológus, a Kakasvér és virágszirom – Egy év Bali szigetén könyv szerzöje
Tegnapelőtt a fémszerszámok napja volt, Tumpek Landep. Ezen a napon Balin az ember a fémszerszámoknak mutat be áldozatot, vagyis a fémszerszámokkal való kapcsolatát erősíti meg. Ez alapvetően a „kris” (krisz), a varázstőr : minden valamire való férfinak van egy ilyen tőre, apáról fiúra száll és a legfontosabb családi eseményekkor előkerül. A fémszerszámok napján áldozatot mutatnak be a krisznek. A bérelt motorbiciklim tulajdonosa elkérte a motort erre az estére, hogy szertartásra vigye. Én megkértem, hadd menjek vele, így aztán elrobogtunk egészen a szülőfalujáig.
Once again, welcoming culture is discussed in the Heilbronn-Franken region at an expert conference at the German Graduate School of Management and Law, Heilbronn on the 18 November 2014.
In a globalized world, welcoming culture is no longer just a so called “soft location factor”. A strong welcoming culture and distinctively lived internationality are becoming more and more important for investors, businesses and highly qualified, globally oriented employees and executives.
But what exactly does “welcoming culture” imply and how is it performed in Germany? To what degree does society or an institution tolerate in-migrants and those willing to in-migrate? In what way can this be developed in the Heilbronn-Franken region?
The Welcome Center Heilbronn-Franken and the German Graduate School of Management & Law invite you to a lively discussion.
More on the topic:
The exhibition “Bridges connect people” by klara denzin cross culture continues until the end of 2014.
For the occasion of an open-house presentation in the “Haus der Wirtschaft” in Solpark, Schwaebisch Hall, Klara Denzin organized an exhibition with pictures of more or less popular bridges photographed by friends and acquaintances.
While working on the opening of her new office, she mailed her friends a request for pictures of bridges. Within three days she received over 60 pictures and decided to make these pictures accessible to the public.
Your can discover the exhibition “Bridges connect people” until the end of 2014 at the office of klara denzin cross culture which is located in the “Haus der Wirtschaft”. While visiting the exhibition you are warmly welcomed to learn more about the training and courses she offers.
Starting in January 2015 a new exhibition “Welcome to Schwaebisch Hall” will take place in which participants of klara denzin cross culture courses will present their personal impressions of their newly chosen home on the Kocher in the form of photographs.

This year the Intercultural Summer Academy (ISA) is celebrating their 15th anniversary in Jena, Germany. The celebrations were held from August 27th until September 7th by the department “Intercultural Business Communication” of the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena in co-operation with the association interculture.de.
In the framework of various workshops a renowned team of trainers imparted culture specific and overall cultural knowledge. Participants were able to discuss their intercultural questions and listen to interesting intercultural presentations in evening events.
For example, the ISA offered the workshop “Accompanying and developing intercultural teams”, which is a practical analysis of fundamental questions regarding the creation of teams with international members. The workshop participants learned how to the analyse group dynamics and were given a chance to try it out. With the method “Intercultural Icebreaker” participants were given a tool for team creation in an intercultural context.
Trainers and coaches were able to hold interesting discussions about challenges and the practical use of intercultural training during the seminars.
Exchanging thoughts in a network of like-minded people was very amusing and enriching at the same time
