did deutsch-institut

In 1970, Madeleine Semidei-K├Âtter had the idea of offering German courses and exchange programs for international students and school children, so she founded Deutsch in Deutschland. Thanks to her engagement, did deutsch-institut, as the institution is called today, has grown to one of the largest and most well known private language schools for learning German in Germany.
