The SKB sees itself as a space in which people with very different personal and cultural backgrounds learn and work with each other. We and the participants in our courses and activities have a great variety of different national, cultural, sexual, religious, etc. identities. The acceptance of this diversity makes up the core of our self-image. If you should feel discriminated against in one of our courses or witness racist, antisemitic, homophobe, transphobe or otherwise discriminatory behavior and actions, please confide in the teacher or come to our office to let us know.

A related project | The "Learning workshop"

Do you already know the "Lernwerkstatt" (learning workshop)? It is a place in which people learn creatively and self-determined as a group. The project of one of our members is currently seeking "Lernbegleiter*innen", i.e. people who would like to share their knowledge and abilities with others as volunteerss It is possible to organize a theme evening, offer workshops, regular discussion groups or study groups. The target audience is everyone who wants to learn, no matter what their age.

Currently the Lernwerkstatt is looking for people who would like to offer a cultural evening in which they provide a little insight into their language, culture and country. This series of evenings will take place in July and August on Saturday afternoons. If you are interested, please write to!

A tandem partner is a person with whom you can practice a language. In exchange for their help, you help them with a language in which you are proficient. In this way, you both get to improve your communication skills in a new language. It is a great way to meet people and interact with a person from another culture. Come have a look on our forum for tandem partners or post your own ad.
