Rosetta Stone coming to Frankfurt

Based on this job ad in Mix am Mittwoch (25 May 2011), I learned Rosetta Stone, the leading language-learning software company, is coming to Frankfurt.

Plans include the opening of a shop in the shopping center MyZeil in Frankfurt by the end of June 2011.

The ad is looking for a full-time shop manager  and a part-time salesclerk. Applications are to be sent to Klara Borsodi at:

Our son has been using Rosetta Stone to learn Japanese and our daughter has started to pick up Spanish. I have only heard good reviews about this language-learning software so far.

Who knows – with Rosetta Stone moving into our lives, my profession as a private teacher might be on its way out. Gradually, that is.

Digital students ask for digital teachers.

Oberursel Hessentag and Blocked Roads

Oberursel is going to host Hessentag from 10 – 19 June. During this time, many major roads in Oberursel will be blocked for regular traffic.

To obtain a pass (to go to and from your home, meet your yoga teacher, chauffeur your kid to school,  go to work, etc.), you have to apply for a permit, either at the local Rathaus or online at hessentag2011 (in German).
