When I arrived in Freiburg, I didn’t speak a single word of German. I was a little scared of the people, the school, the city because I had never been to Germany. But from the first day onwards, everything was great. The teachers at the school are very friendly and attentive and we spoke only German in class. In addition, the school offers various activities and excursions in order to give us an opportunity to learn more about German culture. The other students came from all over the world and made my stay in Freiburg an unforgettable experience. I met people from Switzerland, Turkey, the United States, Spain, France, Russia, Japan, Uruguay and Australia. As mentioned earlier, I was a complete beginner in German. I took part in the standard course. I stayed there for 9 months as a whole and I now have level C1. The learning method of the school allowed me to make rapid progress. The host family was great and we talked everyday. It was a great opportunity to discover German culture in an authentic setting. The city inhabitants are very helpful and there are many indications for non German-speaking people. My stay in Freiburg is drawing to an end. I will miss the school. It was definitely one of the best experiences in my life.
