do Deutsch - German Weeks
In 2011, the German missions and the Goethe-Institut locations in the United States held an event series on German culture and language. During the Deutschlandwochen, literally translated as “German Weeks,” we invited you to embark on the adventure of learning German, the most widely spoken language in Europe. We aimed to pique your interest and curiosity in Germany, the German people, their culture, and their language. With over 20 separate projects and many more individual events across the US, there was ample opportunity to connect with things German. Here’s a glimpse of the events that took place, inviting you to--do Deutsch!
