Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2011
Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2011!
Dear German World Visitors,
Christmas is just a few days away and a year of great challenges, pleasant surprises and new endeavors is coming to a close.
A personal highlight for me this year was my participation in the German Language Conference in Minnesota this summer hosted by Concordia Language Villages and co-sponsored by the Goethe Institut Chicago and the German Embassy. Another highlight was this year’s Steuben Parade that was able to welcome new supporters like the German TV station Deutsche Welle as well as the information about the new initiative to start a German-American caucus in the US Congress. And last, but not least, our own 10-Year-Anniversary Party in December ended the year with a bang. The survival of a magazine in these economical challenging times is a miracle in itself. This miracle has been accomplished by the German-American community and friends of the German language and culture.
In whatever way you are connected to German World – be it as one of our advertisers, or as a subscriber, or as a sponsor of our events, or as a visitor to our website – I’d like to thank you on behalf of our entire team for your interest in German World and your support throughout the year.
In 2011 German World will continue its efforts to promote German as a foreign language in the US and to interconnect various groups within the German, Austrian- and Swiss-American community even closer.
Our latest event, the German World 10th Anniversary Party in Los Angeles, brought an exciting new mix of people together and created new synergies. We are looking forward to creating more networking opportunities in 2011 for you.
German World Magazine will continue to be published quarterly. Additional news reports are weekly updated on our website www.german-world.com.
However, please remember, we cannot do it without your support. Every single subscription, every advertisement ensures that we will be able to keep the only German-English magazine in the US alive.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a healthy and happy new year!
