exercises due: calendar week 9 (Tuesday). As I'm old and forget things, it's Simrat's job to remind me to check the homework.


German Welfare State

  1. The German welfare system is based on three principles:
    1. The principle of compulsory insurance
    2. The principle of financing through contributions
    3. The principle of solidarity

Do a research on these three principles and write a short but meaningful definition of each (in English. Because it's a bilingual course...). 


2. Click HERE and choose one of the two cartoons and interprete it. The password is the name of the city of our "Studienfahrt". (Read "how to interprete a cartoon" in the section "Arbeitstechniken" first!)


3. Watch the explainity video about the German welfare system below (good background knowledge). (voluntarily)
