At the begining, I was a little bit shocked. I was able just to say Hallo, and Wie get's dir? Day by day I improve my knowledge in german, going to cinema, meeting new local people,follwing german lessons.

arriving in Berlin without any knowledge of german language could be a problem if you want to follow the courses in the university. anyway, once you began the academic life you have to be follow all the lessons: the frequency is compusory 75%.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Living in an appartement is the best solution in a city like Berlin. The costs are pretty good and normally you can find really nice accomodations. Living in a appartament, shared by other persons, is also a good opportunity to meet new people, from different cultures.
