If you haven't heard of the Alumniportal-Deutschland (APD) yet, it's high time! If you have studied German in Germany, went to school there or have worked there, this is the German language social network just for you!
The APD is the social network for anyone who has a connection to Germany and it's a fantastic way to stay in touch with people you know from your time there and it's also a fantastic place to learn new things about the German language, others who have studied in Germany, and to widen your own network of contacts. (As we all know, it's who you know that matters most.) Knüpfen Sie hier Kontakte!
Whether you're a private person or a company, you can create a profile on the APD and join groups on every topic from "Deutsch als Fremdsprache" to "Praxisprojekt Nachhaltigkeit" and from "Fußballexperten" to "Essen und Trinken."
Read Interviews & News
There are regular features on German Institutes and there's even an article on Health Apps in Uganda. Where else do you hear about such cool apps making positive change elsewhere in the world?
The editorial team at the APD is obviously very hard-working and they produce Schwerpunktthemen or Key Topics, themes they present and create a discussion around. Currently it's Ortswechsel - Neue Wege gehen, which explores the topic of changing where you are for a program of study, for taking a vacation, or even fleeing your homeland. It's a wide-open topic with many implications for people who are walking many different life paths.
There are over 100,000 members and the development team is constantly developing the website and making it more user-friendly. And they ask for your input, too! There are email updates and you can participate in group discussions as little or as much as you want.
You can even write your own blog there. Das ist total cool!
