The International Office at KLU offers intercultural trainings for incoming students during the Welcome Week. These workshops are designed to help exchange students settle better into Germany's and KLU's everyday life. Objectives will be to learn about cultural theory while focusing on German culture, and enabling students to deal with transcultural experiences and challenges during their time abroad.

Managed by our program coordinators, KLU’s Language Tandem program mediates language partnerships between two students who would like to learn each other’s native language. For instance, if your native language is Spanish and your tandem partner is German, you can improve your German language skills and your partner can practice his/her Spanish language skills with you. If you would like to join KLU for 2, please register via this registration link.
