if you meet exchange students you learn a strange german, it is better to meet german students, but it´s not so easy. The tumis provide a tandem service so that you can meet german students that are learning your language.There is no problem if you don´t mind speaking your language so that they can practice and learn it.It is a little bit annoying.The best thing is to meet german students that don´t speak your language

My german was not very good but most of the people make an effort to understand you and help you in learning new words. Speaking English helped me a lot in certain situations at the very beguinning, but later I spoke only in german, although myy expressions were poor. Is a good method to learn

During the first semester, I had to work hard to learn german but after the second semester was far easier. I was very happy to live with german people to speak the language of the host country. I regret to have spend too much time with people of my country and not enough with german students.

They say that german language ist pretty difficult but I think that when you must live constantly with people that talk this language and you have interest to make friendship or whatever with theme, then you are obliged to learn it and it goes faster than if you use a book

Basic German is a definite must to survive there. It is quite interesting to talk to locals and to find out their special customs. When I speak German to locals, they are pretty impressed with me and they are more friendly.

German is a hard language, but a continuous training with local people helped me to have a basic knowledge to communicate.
