Women’s Academy Ulm: New Course Programme in English

Starting in spring 2016, the Women’s Academy Ulm has expanded its course programme including seminars in English. The aim is to help women who have recently arrived in the Ulm region to start their integration in the new environment. German-speaking women can also take part in the seminars, in order to refresh their language skills, get a glimpse of other cultures and make new contacts.

It is not an easy task to build a new home in a foreign country and culture. Learning the local language is without doubt essential to successful integration. However, it is a long, often quite challenging and time-consuming process. Until a certain level of fluency is acquired, the participation in social life is very limited. Therefore, the Women’s Academy Ulm strives to enable international women to play a part in cultural and social issues without a language barrier. Complex themes in literature, history, art, politics, psychology, philosophy, economics and natural sciences can be discussed with other seminar participants. In addition, some workshops and excursions are offered in “Easy German”. This can contribute to development of a solid network, which can be helpful while settling in.
