sw-ka.de in a new look!

Our new website is live!

We are very happy finally to present you our completely reworked, technically renewed website in a modern and fresh look!

With a lot of love and work we have given our website a completely new look. From now on, the website is responsive, which means that the site visually adapts to all mobile devices. This means that our App UNIverse will be switched off in the future, as the functions of the app can now be mapped directly via the website!

The web address www.sw-ka.de remains the same, as well as your access data, if you have an account, for example to find a language tandem partner or to post an ad on our digital bulletin board and much more.

Have a look and browse through the new content!

We are looking forward to your feedback and hope that you like the new website as much as we do!
