Initiative "Sprache ist Brücke"

The initiative "Sprache ist Brücke" aims to bridge the gap between different cultures by the means of learning a language.

"Sprache ist Brücke" itself consists of three programmes:

Language tutors

Volunteers proofread the scientific works of students from abroad in German, such as project works and final thesis, but also application letters, if necessary. The service is completely free of charge. The volunteers are citizens of Freiberg – pensioneers, students, employees.
