He has explored different cultures and languages around the world, before and during his Magister studies of ethnology, pedagogy and Spanish philology at the Johannes-Gutenberg-University in Mainz, Germany.  As a PhD student in the Transcultural German Studies program, Thomas is eager to learn about multilingualism, language acquisition, and cultural German studies from a transatlantic perspective. A classically trained guitar-player, Benjamin is passionate about music, and he enjoys a good hike.
