People at F+U – and the Olympic Games: Mohamed und Nour Taieb


At F+U Academy of Languages, there are many students with an exciting story to tell. One of these stories is of the twins Mohamed Taieb and Nour from Tunisia, who did not only come to the F+U Academy of Languages Heidelberg to learn German but who will also participate in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in August.

The two row for the national team of Tunisia and have to practice during their stay in Germany as well. “Fortunately, we can practice on the Neckar river in Heidelberg and get supported by the Heidelberg Rowing Club,” says Mohamed. Instead of the usual 3-4 hours of daily training, Mohamed and Nour can only practice privately in the afternoons, when the language course is over – “but it is worth the stress,” the athlete says. Mohamed started rowing in 2007, after his father had read an article about the Tunisian rowing regatta. Two years later, Nour decided to share her twin brother’s passion on a high level. Both won the African Championships several times and achieved very good places in international competitions while they attended German classes at F+U Academy of Languages Heidelberg. They have even participated in the Youth Olympic Games twice – this year, besides the language course, they prepare for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

As Mohamed and Nour have already been learning German in Tunisia and been to Germany before, they attended classes on a B2 level at the F+U Academy of Languages. To be able to study in Germany, Mohamed and Nour passed the TestDaF as well as the DSH exam in June. “It’s not always easy to combine learning and practicing,” reports Nour. But the “Gold Twins”, as they are called in Tunisia, have clearly defined aims they want to achieve.

It is great to see how our students can manage a language course and still pursue their hobby successfully. Outside training, the two get along very well and want to stay together in the future. Their big dream – besides success in rowing – is to start their own business in the field of energy or electrical engineering.

At F+U Academy of Languages, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for Mohamed and Nour for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and wish them all the best for their private and sports career!
