Country presentations:

The conclusion of the German Intensive Course during the International Welcome Week. Incoming international students attended a one-week German course. As a final event as well as a German exam, they present their countries in a 10-minute presentation to the course participants and all interested guests. As representatives of their home countries, they will give the audience a unique insight into culture, history, language and tourist highlights. Come and experience the diversity that is our university. You might even learn a few words in a new language, sing along when they sing or dance when they dance.
