Institute for Inter-Cultural and European Studies
With us you can meet people from other European countries, learn their languages, talk with them, and most of all have fun!
We are an independently registered non profit, non-partisan, non-denominational organisation, based in Dresden, Germany. We are recognized as the central office of the Franco-German Youth Office (FGYO).
Our events / conferences / seminars are organised in Germany, with the help of our partners in France, Poland, and the Czech Republic, as well as various other European countries.
What do we offer?
Education in another light!
> Projects in the area of professional education
Exchange programmes ran by mentors from Germany and partner countries. Engaging in a specific profession in an international context not only raises ones competence in that field, but also significantly improves social and linguistic abilities. A look into the culture and mentality of others is examined and considered together.
Ideas as an audible result of another mentality!
> Themed projects
Special interest groups will be brought together via themed-based encounters. Through group work and the exchange of ideas, the specific characteristics of other culture groups can be discovered and assessed.
Words as a melodious messenger of other cultures!
> Foreign language encounters in the summer
Under professional supervision, participants, through their tandem partners, will discover, in a fun and engaging manner, much more about another country and its language.
A mediator as an active engine in European unification!
> seminars and educational opportunities
Future team-members are being taught pedagogy and methodology as well as various foreign languages, in order to be well-prepared in the professional supervision required for international encounters.
