Our slogan ‘Language as culture. Culture as language’ represents clearly our mission and what we stand for.

Karim Badawy Scholarship
In ÄDK we believe that we have social responsibility for our community. We believe in developing and empowering youth and all society members. That's why we offer the Karim Badawy scholarship for disabled people and individuals. ÄDK offers 10 people annually a full scholarship to learn German in the institute, including resources and materials.
Earlier this year, we launched our philosophy cafe with conjunction with the ÖKF. Philosophy cafe is a place, where lovers of free thinking and discourse, discuss daily problems of our lives and ask questions about life and our existence in it. Our philosophy cafe has been a true joy, where participants from various backgrounds and cultures came together to discuss interesting topics.
The art of teaching is something we have mastered throughout the long years of working in this field. We do believe that for someone to teach German, he needs more than a good command of the German language.A knowledge into the techniques and art of teaching and its methodologies, are what makes unique teachers distinct.
We see ourselves as mediators between east and west. Through facilitating cultural projects that allow dialogue between artists and thinkers, clearing misconceptions and misunderstandings often presented by the media.
