Workshop on career perspectives for students of the German language in EthiopiaEnlarge image
German plays an increasingly important role on the African continent. This is on the one hand due to the increasing interest of German companies in African markets, and on the other the fruit of the long-term support for German as a Foreign Language provided by the German Federal Foreign Office, the DAAD and the Goethe Institute. Since 2011 German is also offered as a BA course at the Addis Ababa University. On Saturday 23 January Dr. Shaban Mayanja, DAAD Lecturer at the University of Nairobi, presented the German Master Course at the University of Nairobi as well as general career perspectives for students of the German language to the German students of the Addis Ababa University. At the same time the German Embassy in Addis, the Goethe Institut and the local office of the DAAD outlined their services to the students.
