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 at 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 15), where everyone is supposed to bring some food. As a result, we´ll enjoy a huge variety of delicious dinner. The first Monday is followed by Find your Tandem (April 29, 6 PM, @ZHG) where you might find a language partner to improve your language skills in your target language. We will have 2 cooking evenings and a summerparty. On other Mondays we´ll organize a gaming night, an intercultural picnic, crafting evening, and a concert of our Erasmus choir for you.

Our highlights on Mondays are the cultural evenings. People from Egypt, Georgia, and India 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.

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?!, or Café Español 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 drawing skills to the test at the Theaterkurs, or Painting Workshop. The courses might offer you a chance to awaken your secret talents! If you want to do some yoga, you should definitely join our Yoga Workshop .

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

Your Foyer Team,
Gülsin, Merve, Svenja, Toni, and Rike
