Ms. Katharina Kolbiarts and Mr. Bernhard Aigner are students of the University of Vienna. Their major is "Teaching German as a Foreign Language" and at present time they are working as trainees with a group of Minin university graduate students.
In 2020, Minin university master degree program "Modern Technologies of Teaching German as a Foreign Language" actively develops its cooperation with the University of Vienna (Austria). In October and November 2020 Minin Nizhny Novgorod State Pedagogical University became an internship platform for students from Vienna.
The program is coordinated by Ms. Isabella Temper, a lecturer at the University of Vienna, and a Minin university teacher, Ms. Anastasia Oladyshkina.

“During the German language classes that were organized by Isabella Temper, we got an opportunity to learn more about various cultural peculiarities of Austria and hold a series of interesting discussions. For instance, were worked on the topic" How to learn German effectively?".
Moreover, during our German classes we practiced different structures of expressing personal opinion, agreement, disagreement, etc. The most interesting class, for me, was the team work where Bernhard and Katarina took part. They actively shared with us their knowledge in German, gave detailed answers to all our questions. A friendly atmosphere, positive attitude, as well as interesting format of assignments made our classes fascinating and memorable"
