Learning Chinese in Oberursel

Ten years ago, when our son first voiced an interest in learning Chinese, there was no Chinese school around. Fortunately, I found a private teacher in the classifieds back then.

As of 2012, Oberursel has its own Sunday school for Chinese learners. The first courses started this past Sunday, 27 January, and classes run from 10 a.m. – 12: 45 p.m.

Classes are being held at the Feldbergschule, Oberhöchstädter Strasse 20. All teachers are certified, and Mandarin Chinese is taught.

Children and adults are welcome to learn Chinese (one of the six official UNO languages). Additionally, a partnership with a Chinese school  in Yiwu has been established and a student exchange is planned for the coming year.

Membership fees are starting from euro 168 semi-annually. For more information, visit www.chinesischeschule.de.

February 3, 2011 starts the 15-day celebration. Here are some links if you are interested in more information:

On the other hand, if you read the article Sign of the times: Astrology story soars like a comet, you might want to stick to the Chinese calendar anyway. Some astrology buffs had to take a hard blow earlier this month when they found out that astrologers have been reading the stars all wrong.

This would move me from Capricorn to Sagittarius, but only if I believed in it. On most days, I don’t.
