VHS Adult Education Center offers an English programme for expats

The Volkshochschule Bonn (VHS) adult education center includes classes in its regular programme which particularly address the English-speaking citizens of Bonn. The former capital of the Federal Republic of Germany has become Germany's UN City and has thus attracted a considerable number of international organisations. Many employees of the UN, of international institutions and global players, such as Deutsche Telekom and Deutsche Post DHL, come from abroad. These so-called expats live and work in Bonn for a limited time. VHS provides these foreign guests with the opportunity to get to know their host city a little more and, at the same time, to get in contact with other citizens of Bonn.
