I liked that international students weren't isolated from German students, or limited to certain classes, there was a real effort to integrate students and I felt like the classes I took were always filled with either German students or other international students, so I was constantly meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures, this was probably the most rewarding part for me personally. I also found it rewarding living in the city, rather than the suburbs, people were always willing to converse in German and by the end of my program most of my conversations in a day were in German, even ones with friends. It was really rewarding to notice my own confidence in speaking grow and to be able to converse much more easily than when I first arrived.

I felt as though learning about Europe and all the different cultures bundled around each other was highly rewarding.
