100 Years of Teaching German in India

Knowledge of the German language

The year 2014 marks the centenary celebration of teaching German in India. What began as an initiative at the University of Mumbai (then Bombay) by German and Swiss missionaries at St. Xaviers' College and Wilson College now exists as the Department of German catering to approximately 900 students annually, making German one of the most sought after foreign languages students wish to pursue at the University of Mumbai.

The celebrations spread over the entire year bear witness to the growing importance of the German language in India. With the onset of globalisation and German companies making their foray into India and vice versa, the significance of possesing the knowledge of the German language is only further augmented.

Infos: To commemorate the centenary of the Teaching of German in Pune and in India, various events have been hosted throughout the year 2014 - with the participation of the Embassy and the Consulate of Germany and other German speaking countries, German Academic Exchange Service, Max Mueller Bhavan, Indo-German Chamber of Commerce, InDaF, German departments of Indian universities, Colleges, Schools and many other institutions, http://www.germancentenary.com/, http://punegermancentenary.com/, German Consulate General in Mumbai

Anlaufstelle in Pune

 

Direkte Ansprechpartner
Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im MCCIA Trade Tower, 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle in Pune eröffnet. Erste Ansprechpartner dort sind die Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von Let's Bridge IT, die rund um den Standort Karlsruhe informieren, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten - und dazu auch deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen.


"Wir freuen uns, dass wir hier einen festen Standort haben. Das bringt unsere Kooperationen einen Schritt weiter", so der Tenor.
Auch von indischer Seite wurde dieses Engagement vor Ort schon mehrfach besonders gewürdigt: Eine gute Basis für weitere enge Kooperationen.
