See for yourself and read more in the NEUE WEGE sustainability report under: COUNTRY AND PEOPLE TIME DIFFERENCE AND CLIMATE The time difference between Germany and India is +3.5 hours in summer and +4.5 hours in winter. The best time to travel to South India is between October and March. During these months, summer temperatures usually prevail in southern India, which continue to rise from April until the monsoon sets in in July / August. The rain comes mainly from the southwest, but the southeast coast is touched by a short northeast monsoon, which brings rain from mid-October to the end of November. During the monsoons it does not rain all the time and not all day. It rains almost every day, but mostly only for a short time. Shortly afterwards the sun is shining in the sky again and everything is fresh and pleasant. Climate information under: LANGUAGE AND UNDERSTANDING The two national official languages ​​are Hindi and English. It is especially easy to communicate in English with educated Indians. However, the standard of education is sometimes still very low, especially in less developed areas, which can make communication there problematic. It usually does not occur in shops, restaurants, rickshaws and taxis, as knowledge of English is usually sufficient for at least basic, subject-related exchange. You collect plus points if you acquire some expressions of the respective Indian regional language (e.g. Malayalam). Detailed program - India Farmstays in Kerala - extensions 11
