The Good & the Bad - what did you like best? What least?
I was a huge fan of the freedom to learn and of the wide range of opportunities provided to all students. The ability to become totally immersed in the culture and language was incredibly fun and helpful to my understand of the German language.
Your recommendations for other students
While the activities are fun, don't be afraid to create your own schedule. There are tons of incredible opportunities and activities in Berlin that can only be experienced by your willingness to explore the city and try new things.
Also, don't be embarrassed to try speaking German in the city! Although you will get along fine with English, you will learn a lot less colloquialisms and actual day-to-day German. Even though you may think you sound dumb at first, by the end you will be totally confident ordering food and getting around.
