German as a foreign language



German is spoken as a first language by about 90 to 105 million people worldwide. In the European Union, German is even the most widely spoken language. It has more than five million words. There are many interesting facts about this language: the letter ß ("eszett" as it is called) exists only in the German alphabet and seemingly endless words can be formed by stringing nouns together. In addition, there are words that only exist in German, such as Abendbrot (eating sandwiches and nothing warm in the evening is typically German) or Fernweh (the opposite of homesickness).

Dr. Kristina Seibert

Hello, my name is Kristina Seibert and I come from Westerwald, which is a region in the north of the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. I studied "Literary Studies: Literature, Culture, Media" and did my PhD on the construction of regions in German-language regional crime novels. In addition, I completed a continuing education program in teaching German as a foreign language. My special interests are researching creative as well as collaborative writing and, in this context, didactics for writing support in foreign language teaching. Therefore, creative and/or collaborative writing tasks are an integral part of my German teaching.
