German Cultural Centre (Deutches Kulturzentrum, 德國文化中心) in Taipei expanding

Tuesday, March 03, 2009

Well, looks like not all the news for the German language is bad:

Increasing demand for quality German language courses has prompted the German Cultural Center in Taipei to expand its operations by adding a new floor of classrooms.

Center director Jurgen Gerbig, a long-time educator from the Goethe Institute, said the center, Deutches Kulturzentrum in German, celebrated its 45th anniversary last week.

Established in 1963, the center has been a mecca for German language learners. Located conveniently next to Guting MRT station and close to two major universities, the center now covers three floors, with the new sixth floor made up mainly of classrooms that are equipped with state-of-the-art gadgets.
