The classes and the excursions allowed for a lot of learning -- we got to really go in depth into the culture and sights and meet a lot of people while doing it. The home stay was also very beneficial. It was much better than having to stay in a hotel or something; being able to live with a family and interact with them really helped to boost language understanding and show some in depth details of German culture.

I found the trip to Cologne, Bonn, and Berlin very educational and a great insight into the different German Cultures. The group trips twice a week were also very rewarding because we were able to experience a lot from museums to Bavarian foods to beautiful castles.

I truly enjoyed how close all of the students became after six weeks in Germany. We are all still friends, and I am glad that we had the opportunity to spend so much time together while we studied abroad. I think we made lasting friendships.
