Why do you learn German?

I am a doctor in Ukraine and want to improve my medical German. There are so many opportunities for young doctors to work in Germany and I think this is a great motivation to learn German.

Why do you learn German at the Humboldt-Institut?

When I took my first course with Humboldt, I met lots of new people and we are still in contact today. The teachers were very attentive and helpful. So I decided to return for another German course.

Your favorite German word?

Unabhängigkeit (independence) – this was the most difficult word for me to read when I started learning German.
