Encounters between International and German students
The Studentenwerk München supports the project "GASTFREUNDE MÜNCHEN":
Following the principle "ONE WORLD - ONE FAMILY" Munich families invite international students.
"Gastfreunde München" bring together international students and citizens of Munich and surroundings. The students can learnmore about Germany and its people during different activities: meeting for coffee, eating together, speaking German, discussing about interesting topics, doing sports, playing music and much more.. This way they get to know the everyday life in their host country!
