In the latest months it has been excellent. The key was to find an environment where you were the only international student with a group of Germans. The best opportunity for that was to find a job, so that is what i did and my language and communications skills have improved enormously.

The college that i go at home is very small compared to this small German city. Another reason is that i dont have a car in the USA while in Germany everything is connected by railways.

Personal recommendation
It was an excellent place to see the "real Germans", it is a typical German city with everything that anyone would need but if you are thinking that you will improve in your major (if it is not German) it will not come that easy.

Personal comments
The closest disco to the city is "Brazil" even though by far it is not the best (that being "Airport"). The best cafes are all in Juliuspromenade although in Marktplatz the Cafe Schonbrun is extremely nice. Events not to be missed are the Kiliani Fest and the Mozart Festival.

The dormitory I am staying at is incredibly well located, clean and spacious. Most other dorms are the same except they are a little further away from the middle of the city.
