Intercultural Trainings & Workshops

In our training courses and workshops, we support you in acquiring intercultural, social and language skills that are helpful for your studies and successful intercultural interaction.

What is so foreign about other cultures? 
How do we come across to others? 
How do misunderstandings arise and what does language have to do with them? 

We get to the bottom of these and other questions.

Language Cafés@TUHH

The idea is quite simple: At a Language Café you can just drop by, chat with each other in a nice atmosphere and at the same time polish up your language skills, make new friends and find out more about other cultures. The meetings are led by native speakers.


Language Tandem

Tandem language exchange means that two people with different mother tongues come together to improve their language skills. Through regular meetings and conversations in the other language, you practise your listening and speaking skills.
