DAZ Website Now Available in English

To welcome our English-speaking visitors, our website is now bi-lingual – you can switch the language setting in the navigation bar in the upper righthand corner.
Both versions still share the event calendar so the old rule applies: if an event description is in German, so is the event; English or bilingual events will be announced in English. If you want to double-check, the language is always provided within the event details as well.
In other areas, the two language versions are not identical: for our programs that primarily target German audiences such as the English courses or our America Explained programs for local schools, we have overview pages with only the most important information in English. We chose to highlight program areas that are more relevant to English speakers, for example our groups or our library.
