Skills Initiative: Sharing Best Practices in Workforce Training

Through Skills Initiative, the German Embassy is seeking cooperation with states, locally convening groups of German companies and bringing them together with training providers so that they can work on the best fit for training programs in their area.

Language, Study and Research

Engaging with the German language encourages dialogue, exchange and cooperation between people and cultures. Whatever it is you want to find in the area of study and exchange to Germany, from degree programs in Germany, to scholarship databases, to study abroad helpful hints, our practical guide is here to assist you.

Word of the Week: schräger Vogel

The term schräger Vogell translates to "slanted/crooked bird." But in this case, the word schräg means "strange" instead of "crooked". And it has nothing to do with our feathery friends.
