Dear Members and Friends,
The world has changed tremendously since you received our last e-NL at the end of February. As with many other countries all around the world, Malaysia has also announced a Movement Control Order (MCO) due to the Covid19 pandemic starting from 18 March and currently extending until the 14 April.
On the same day it was also announced by the Registrar of Societies (RoS), that all activities are banned until June 2020. Even AGMs cannot be held in this period.
I’m very sorry to say that we therefore have had to cancel our events in March and April – and something which is really sad to announce, our MaiBall as well.
Our AGM, which was scheduled for 7 June will be postponed to a later date in the year.
Our MGS office, as well as the library, has had to close down as well due to the MCO but we are still approachable per e-mail.
Some of our members are already dearly missing the MGS library. If you haven’t already done so, you might like to try out the online library called ONLEIHE. You can sign up via the link https://www.goethe.de/ins/my/de/kul/med/onl.html
They have 35,000 media in German on offer for you to borrow for free.
Thanks to the dedication and commitment of our German teachers Claudia Skirl and Dr Tim Höllering, we are proud to announce that all of our German classes have switched to online teaching now. Bahasa Class conducted by Dr Nur Adnan is also continuing online.
The German embassy highly recommends all German Nationals to register with them. If you have not done so already, please do so elefand.diplo.de
If you are a foreigner of another nationality, please check with your own embassy.
Please take care and stay healthy this challenging time.
