Antje Kessler Furman University

Hey there!

 My name is Antje and I am the German Language House Assistant for the next two semesters.

 I am from Cuxhaven, a city in the north of Germany. I finished Highschool in 2012 and worked as a volunteer at a moor information center until July.

In the future I want to become a teacher for English and German. Therefore I used the chance to get to Furman to improve my English and to get to know the country!

 My hobbies are horse riding, reading, playing the guitar and singing. I also like swimming and going to parties. I’m interested in languages and I’ve learned French for six years.

 My job as Language House Assistant is fun and in addition to the lessons we will have some activities such as the Kaffeestunde (coffee meeting) or the Stammtisch (lunch). Those two activities will be a chance to practice German. We also have a German Movie Night and we will do some Game Nights and we could cook some typically German dishes. Furthermore we will organize a little Oktoberfest for the German Language House.

 If there is anything else you want to know about the German culture or if you need help just ask me. I’m happy if I can practice with you and answer your questions!

Please don’t hesitate and send me an email at

 Liebe Grüße,
