On June 11, 2024, pupils at Geschwister-Scholl-Gymnasium in Freiberg had an exciting opportunity during their 11th-grade French class. They welcomed Anis Zefizef, an Algerian student from TUBAF (Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg), currently studying Business Administration in his second semester. His visit seamlessly aligned with the French class' curriculum, which was currently focusing on the Francophone world.

Anis Zefizef, who is also involved as a buddy for new international students at the International Office, presented his home country Algeria to the students in a captivating presentation. Offering insightful glimpses into Algeria's history, culture, and daily life, he illustrated the cultural diversity and the significant role of the French language in his homeland.

The dialogue between Anis Zefizef and the students was marked by curiosity and lively exchange. The young learners seized the opportunity to ask numerous questions and apply their French language skills in an authentic context. The visit deepened the students' understanding of the Francophone world while expanding their intercultural competencies.

This visit was part of the "International Students in Schools" project, aimed at promoting intercultural exchange and raising students' awareness of global issues.

The International Office expressed delight at the success of this visit and thanked all participants for their openness and engagement. Ingrid Lange, the Director of the International Office, emphasized the importance of such encounters and looks forward to further projects contributing to intercultural dialogue.

Anis Zefizef, in addition to his studies, plays a central role in supporting and integrating new students who are required to take German courses before starting their specialized studies.
