Europanetzwerk Deutsch

On behalf of the Federal Foreign Office, the programme Europanetzwerk Deutsch promotes the German language as a procedural and working language in the EU institutions. In the frame of EU courses, weekend language courses and face-to-face courses are used to improve the German language skills of senior EU officials and ministry officials of the Permanent Representations of the EU Member States as well as their knowledge about Germany. Events on current socio-political topics in German complement the offer.
