Readers’ Comments

GW_Sp12_1_cover_final_lrGERMAN WORLD MAGAZINE will celebrate its 10th Anniversary this October. From a small 16-page newsletter, we have been able to grow the magazine to a 64-page, bilingual, glossy publication that has been acknowledged as a valuable tool to promote German as a foreign language in the US and build an important connection between the various German-American communities by the Embassy of Germany, the German consulates, the Goethe-Institut, the DAAD exchange service, and many more.

Thanks to the patronage of  our advertisers and subscribers as well as to the  feedback from our readers we have been able to improve our publication from issue to issue.

Please find some of the recent comments of our readers below:

Jennifer F., Teacher from Illinois:
“Your magazine is fantastic! I teach German in High School and I also prepare students for the AP German test. The current events and articles are very useful and relevant.”

Dr. Cecilia Cloughly, retired teacher from California and founder of  GLOW (
“Thanks to the article in GW about “Hausmusik” and the “Claremont Symphony MUSIC MAN Project”,  two German World readers donated music instruments to deserving children. One reader from California donated a brand new violin, another reader from Pennsylania a violin that was no longer played on in his family.”

Cathie C., Wisconsin:
“Also, just a note that I received my first issue of the magazine last week and am enjoying reading it very much and glad to be subscribing to German World. It’s well done in layout design, contents, articles, etc., etc. Nice job done. Thanks.”

Tanja Guess, Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, Germany:
“Vielen Dank für die Zusendung Ihres Magazins. Und den erfreulich großen Artikel über den „Pina“-Erfolg bei den Oscars, den haben wir natürlich inunseren Pressespiegel mit aufgenommen. Schön, dass dieser Film und die Nominierung bei Ihnen so viel Platz erhielten! Und wie schade, dass es nicht geklappt hat…”
