Events at F+U Academy of Languages

The Japan Centre

Here at the F+U Academy of Languages, we naturally attach great importance not only to language learning but also to interaction among the diverse cultures represented at our school. Even so, we are especially dedicated to nurturing German-Japanese relations – and with good reason: with our Foreign Language Correspondence Clerk training course specialising in Japanese – unique in Germany – as well as the hundreds of Japanese language students who come here every year, there is particularly avid interest in promoting understanding between the two cultures.

To this end, the Japan Centre was founded in August 2011, dedicated to the cultural exchange between Germany and Japan. Led by Ms Aika Matsuda, the Centre organises regular events such as the monthly Japan Seminar, in which various Japan-related topics are presented and discussed, as well as excursions to various sights and festivals in Heidelberg and the surrounding area. Anyone interested in getting to know like-minded people or searching for a possible tandem partner will certainly find what they are looking for at the monthly Japanese-German ‘Stammtisch’ (regular get-together). Japanese film or music evenings also feature in the Centre’s varied programme. Now, after just one year, the innovative Japan Centre is a success story in every respect: the Centre’s events are always fully booked and continue to gain in popularity. Everyone interested in Japan, in German-Japanese relations and in the similarities and contrasts between the two cultures is warmly welcome.

The Japan Centre also has an online presence, both on the F+U website and on the Centre’s own Facebook page – this is where you can find the current calendar of events and also exchange comments on past and future events.
