Attendance at Goethe-Institut in Athens up 20% over last year

Monday, February 27, 2012

From here in German:

German-Greek relations have been strained since the euro crisis. In spite of this, more and more Greeks want to learn German. They hope for better job prospects.

A recent survey found that eight out of ten Greeks consider Germany's role in Europe to be negative, and for 76% of them Germany is even a "hostile" country.

On the other hand there are more Greeks wanting to learn the German language than ever before. German courses in Athens are currently a hit, and in the Goethe-Institut in the Greek capital are 350 students learning the language. This is 20% greater than one year before.

The rest of the article after this though is all about German-Greek relations, the euro, the more info on language after that.
