14.11.2017 Café Lingua
Foreign languages are best learned by practicing, having an intercultural dialog and therefore also lots of fun. Our "Café Lingua" offers you a perfect opportunity to do just that.
On the second Tuesday of each month, INCAS organizes a multilingual café for you. In this event you can get in touch with students of different mother tongues. The INCAS team members set up tables for different languages, promote the communication and are open for your questions or proposals.
By the way, it does not matter whether you registered for our language exchange program. The more you practice, the better. In case you are looking for a partner to practice individually you might even find someone here. So have a seat - it's time for Café Lingua.
When: on the second Tuesday of each month, starting at 8 pm
Where: in the Humboldt Haus, Pontstrasse 41

25.11.2017 INCASWeekend Brüssel
Hey INCAS friends,
We are inviting you to join us on our trip to Brussels on 25th of November!
Brussels is one of the most vivid and international cities in Europe. It is not only the capital of Belgium, but also the capital of Europe and therefore the domicile of the European Parliament. After foundation in the early middle ages, it flourished economically and maintained an important position in Western Europe. The historic houses on the market place still show us the beauty of Brussels at that time.
With the foundation of the EWG (the forerunner of the EU), which set up their head quarters in Brussels and the World Fair in 1958, which most significant building, the Atomium, can still be visited today, Brussels fully came to the fore of Europe and the world. Many embassies, culture institutes and international companies shape the town picture. Brussels really is multicultural!
In the morning we will take the bus to Brussels. After arrival, we will first visit the House of European History, which is located close to the European institutions. The museum, which just opened in May of this year, promotes the understanding of European history and the European integration. With audioguides and the interactive exhibition, you will travel through the history of Europe – starting at 1789 – in a unique way.
Afterwards we will have a two-hour- guided city tour. You will get the chance to get a first overview over the city and learn more about the history and architecture. We will see the historic Guild houses on the market place, the glass-vaulted Galleries Saint Hubert and the narrow alleys in the old town.
In the afternoon, you can explore Brussels inner city on your own pleasure. You could take pictures on the historic market place, look at the picturesque buildings in the old town, visit one of the plenty museums, have a famous Belgian beer or try the delicious Belgian chocolate.
Also, we will get there just in time for the famous Brussels Winter Wonders and Christmas Market which goes through the historic town center. With its 2 kilometers, it belongs to the 10th largest Christmas Markets in Europe. You can explore many aspects of the Winter festival, including the magical son & lumière illuminations on the Grand-Place with its gorgeous Christmas tree, attractions including merry-go-rounds on Place Sainte-Catherine, the 48 meter high Ferris wheel and ice rink at Marché aux Poissons and about 230 stalls for stocking up on gifts and treats.
In the evening, the bus will take us back to Aachen.
We are looking forward to you,
Your INCAS Team
