A look back on the 2021 Franco-German Week:
The evening on mobility to Germany: Four members of the CCFA-team, Sophie Kuhn, Arne Hintz, Alexia Theissen-Achille and Isabel Schmidt, presented their respective mobility programmes which allow them to stay in the neighboring country. The presentation included mobility programmes between France and Germany, funded by the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst – German Academic Exchange Service) or by the the FGYO (Franco-German Youth Office), and exchanges in the context of the twinning between Nantes and Saarbrücken.
The evening on East Frisia: You only know this region from North-Germany by the jokes about its inhabitants? Not anymore! Our colleague Arne Hintz takes you on a trip to his native region for an evening on Zoom. His presentation showed not only the geography of the region, but also the specific dialect and traditions of the region. The guest of honor: a real “Ostfriese” joined the presentation live from his kitchen in East Frisia, to demonstrate a traditional tea ceremony, all the while speaking “Platt”, the traditional dialect.
