unser Auftakt in das neue Jahr mit dem ersten Stammtisch im Cancún am Alexanderplatz war sehr schön und lustig mit euch. Wir hatten viel Spaß beim Quiz und bei leckerem mexikanischem Essen. Wir freuen uns schon auf den nächsten Stammtisch und haben noch ein paar schöne Bilder für euch zum Anschauen.
am 20. Januar findet unser Kulturprogramm im Willy Brandt Forum statt. Diesmal werden wir uns mit einem der wichtigsten Politiker aus der Vergangenheit beschäftigen, Willy Brandt!
Nach dem zweiten Weltkrieg half er beim Aufbau von Frieden und Demokratie in Deutschland, er war Bürgermeister in West-Berlin während der Zeit der Berliner Mauer und auch der insgesamt vierte Bundeskanzler in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Während seiner Lebenszeit setzte er sich für Gerechtigkeit, Frieden, Freiheit, Menschrechte und die Einheit beider deutscher Staaten ein.
Im Rahmen einer 90-minütigen Führung werden wir uns etwas genauer mit seinem Leben beschäftigen.
Der Treffpunkt ist um 14:20 Uhr an der DeutschAkademie am Alexanderplatz.
Meldet euch rechtzeitig an, da es nur eine begrenzte Teilnehmeranzahl gibt.

I love studying at DeutschAkademie because my classes are always a unique mixture of cultures. My classmates come from all over the world. Every time I start a new class I am really excited to go and be surprised by where my classmates would come from. It’s such a privilege to have the chance to meet and to make international friends.
For example my current classmates are from England, Yemen, Brazil, Indonesia and USA. How cool is that, isn’t it? All of them are coming from different background and have an interesting story.
For example, a brief summery can be the next:
- My English classmate is a PhD History student
- My 2 classmates from Yemen are sisters and they came here to work and study German
- My Brazilian classmate studied Chemistry but here in Berlin he is working as Bartender – this is his hobby and passion
- My American classmate has 3 little lovely children. She got married to German and came here 4 years ago. She is currently studying and searching for a job
- My Indonesian classmate is 17 years old, preparing herself for university which starts in September
Every classroom in DeutschAkademie contains so many fascinating stories, unique people and international friendships
I love being a citizen of the world. And here in Berlin you can definitely feel like one
I love the snow. I think that everything looks so white, beautiful and cosy. White winter time is the best!!! What better than a snow fight, or building a snow man, or reading a book + drinking an aromatic tea while watching the snow outside?
Germans are the best in creating cosines! Have you ever heard about Tee stövchen??? This is a little tee heater with a candle which keeps your tea pot warm during this cold winter days. I told you. Germans are the best in making the atmosphere in every season comfy. Every day I discover their creative inventions
Have fun and make your winter enjoyable ;)
Berlin is a city of art and unique museums. I am so thankful for being able to live here. There are so many interesting places to be discovered and enjoyed.
Have you ever been in the Old National Gallery of Berlin? Yes, the beautiful building in the museum island, the one with the impressive horse rider on the top of the majestic staircases. I went there on the weekend and spent more than 4 hours inside.
It contains an exclusive collection of the most beautiful paintings I have ever seen. It was incredible!!! You have the option to learn more about the painters and the meaning behind each painting through a free audio guide in different languages. I was amazed after hearing the different stories.
I strongly recommend you to visit this gallery. It’s a magic world that you need to discover.
Have you ever watch any silent movie????
You have to check the new movie of Shaun the Sheep !!! It’s really fun and you will laugh until your stomach hurt. I have never though that a silent movie will leave such an impact on me. I watched it recently and I became a fan of this little Shaun.
It tells the story of a very cute and very intelligent sheep which has genius ideas. Really creative movie.
The other day when I was in Dussman shop in Berlin I could meet again this little Shaun buddy …and of course I could not resist taking a picture with him ;)
Below you can see us together ;)
The best Christmas gift that you can offer to your loved ones is TIME together !!!
We are always busy and we never have enough time to spend some quality moments with our family and friends. Maybe during this season of the year is the best time to stop and enjoy what we have been blessed with. Jobs will come and go, apartments will come and go, even some friends will come and go, but family will always stay family.
So, remember to cherish them and enjoy the time with them. For example, when we are home for Christmas we love cooking together. There are so many fun and easy recipes which can make your holiday experience unique.
The other day we made Croissants. We used simply blätterteig which we filled with cheese or with chocolate.
Have fun with your family
One of my best friends Adlien got married!!! She is also a German student like me. It’s such a privilege to meet so many special people who are joining me in the journey of learning a new language. They all have a different reason for studying German. Some are doing it because of a hobby, university, job or because their loved ones are German speakers.
The wedding of my beautiful friend Adlien was really wonderful. Her husband Toby is from Switzerland. As you know Swiss people also speak German language but with a different accent.
It was really nice to be part of their big day. Adlien and Toby are such a special couple which always will inspire us. The wedding was bilingual: half was in English and half in German. The guests were from all over the world. Many of them prepared a speech or a surprise for the newlyweds. It was a wonderful experience.
German weddings are very beautiful and offer a great atmosphere
Recently I had my family visiting me in Berlin. They have never been here before and they were really happy to discover the city through my eyes.
I love having visitors who I normally take to the unusual touristic places of Berlin. I love taking them to the hidden corners of the city. That way they can feel the real taste of the capital and to become Berliners for few days.
One of our stops was a cute little shop in Hackeshermarkt. We found many curiosity items and we laughed about many other fun objects. We bought this cute red cookies box as a souvenir from Berlin. Unusual isn’t it? Yes, but that’s what we usually like to be…UNUSUAL :p
If you have family or friends visiting you in Berlin, my advice is to show them something unusual and not very touristic. Take them to your local bakery, to your favorite coffee place or to the small shop in a dark street which carries the Berliner flavor. They will be surprised and they will love it
