Before the semester started, I had two months of intense German courses. My grammar was already very good, but I improved it and my vocabulary was greatly approved. I also had a television for the last three months, which helped a lot with vocabulary and slang.

Personal comments
If you have to write a Hausarbeit, try to get it started at least, before the semester is over. If you wait and do it once you've returned to your home country, it's really hard to make yourself complete it and turn it in.

Final comments
It's a great idea to study abroad for a full year, because you almost need one semester to get adjusted to the way things work, and then you can take on more serious academic work the second semester, or complete your work more efficiently.

Personal comments
I would usually meet my friends at someone's dorm kitchen to drink a bit before going out, to save money. Then we often met at the Neckarmüller, the local brewery/bar, which also had a Biergarten in the Summer. We tried a few other places, but Neckarmüller was our usual spot.

Housing
Type of housing: dormitory, not on campus
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
After having lived in the dorms, I thought I would like to live with a family, so that I would use the language more, but now I am living with a German-speaking family in Switzerland, so I think in the future I would like to have an apartment.
