Göttingen International

Foyer International

Hello everyone,
We are the Foyer International, part of the international office of the university. We are here to give German and international students a platform to meet each other and spent time together. Our activities are always free and you can join anytime!

We offer many different events and activities for international and German students alike who enjoy adding an international touch to their daily lives. These cultural programs take place in the Foyer International, offering a variety of forums for trans-national exchanges and opportunities to form new friendships.

The Monday program varies from week to week. We will start off with a potluck dinner (April 9), where everyone is supposed to bring some food. As a result we´ll enjoy a huge variety of delicious food. The dinner is followed by Find your Tandem (April 16, 6PM, @ZHG) where you might find a language partner to improve your language skills in your target language. The program ranges from crafting jute bags and tealights, a concert of our Erasmus choir, to outdoor games, and enjoying some snacks, music, and drinks at our summer party. Our highlights on Mondays are the cultural evenings. People from Greece, South Korea, and Ghana will present their country and culture this semester. If you like cooking, food, and want to taste international specialties from around the world, you should not miss our cooking evenings. This semester, students from Slovakia and Paraguay will introduce to the cuisine of their country.

By joining our language workshops you will have the chance to culturally, artistically, and linguistically travel around the globe with us and other students! The language groups meet (bi-)weekly. You can join Caffè Italia, Soirées Franco-Allemandes, English Workshop, Typisch Deutsch?!, Café Español, or the German-Japanese Workshop to improve your language skills, talk about differences among countries, cultures, peoples, traditions, and trends, or to rid yourself of prejudices you may have been carrying with you while having a great time.

In addition, every Friday you can watch a good movie at English Movie Night. You can even put your acting and dancing skills to the test at the Theaterkurs, or Dance-Impro, where people from all over the world gather to act, dance, improvise and sing. The courses might offer you a chance to awaken your secret talents!

We wish you a wonderful semester and look forward to seeing new and familiar faces at the Foyer International.

Your Foyer Team,
Ben, Gülsin, Niklas, Svenja und Toni
