I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

- Wikipedia Description: Goethe-Institut
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Goethe-Institut (GI) is a German non-profit organisation whose mission is to promote German language and culture outside of the German-speaking countries. Its primary concern is teaching German as a second language. The Goethe-Institut's second goal is to strengthen Germany's international cultural relations. This includes not only the exchange of films, music, theatre, literature, and the like, but also the values of civil society.
The Goethe-Institut was founded in 1925 as the Deutsche Akademie (DA), and currently has branch institutes all over the world: 16 within Germany and 128 in 77 other countries.
The Goethe-Institut merged with Inter Nationes, an organization with certain common goals, in 2001. After an interim name "Goethe-Institut Inter Nationes" the name was shortened to the old version.
It is named after German polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
The Goethe-Institut is mainly financed by the national government of Germany, and has around 3,300 employees and an overall budget of approximately 278 million euros at its disposal, more than half of which is generated from language course tuition and examination fees. The Goethe-Institut offers scholarships to students from foreign countries. Most of these scholarships, however, are aimed at teachers of German.
The Goethe-Institut has its headquarters in Munich. Its president is Professor Dr. Jutta Limbach, the General Secretary Dr. Hans-Georg Knopp; Financial Manager Mr. JŘrgen Maier. ...
In 2005, along with the Alliance franšaise, the SocietÓ Dante Alighieri, the British Council, the Instituto Cervantes and the Instituto Cam§es, the Goethe-Institut was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award for outstanding achievements in communications and the humanities.
In 2007, it received a special Konrad Duden Prize for its work in the field of German language.
In Iran, the Goethe-Institut officially opened in Tehran in 1958, but was forced to close down in 1981 due to a diplomatic row with Germany. It reopened under the German embassy in Tehran as a "point for dialogue".
In India the institutes are called Max Muller Bhavans in honour of the famous German historian and archeologist involved in the excavation of the Indus Valley Civilization in India.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
