I definitely noticed a big improvement in understanding German before and after my experience. This is most apparently in how much I absorbed in lectures during the first compared to second semester. Another thing is, the more you speak, the more you pick up. If I had to do it again, I'd definitely try to speak more.

At the beginning it was difficult to make oneself understood due to my limited vocabulary. In spite of this people were open enough and were very patient trying to understand that that I was saying. Currently these initial problems have disappeared and both my partners and I can enjoy a nice conversation in German.

Very difficult at first to communicate with other German students. They don't speak any slower for you and use slang. University German teaches you literature language and not the real world German.
