My overall language experience was great. The classes were in english for my program, but we had a German converstaion class. Plus I lived with a family and had an internship in the city. I was definitely more comfortable with the language by the end of my time.

I went to Paderborn to work on my German. I took Language courses plus a masters course in English, so I enjoyed the language balance. I made a point of speaking German as much as possible, which is easy to do in Paderborn.

It gave me the chance to improve both German and English, and I got also interested in other languages like French, Dutch or Arabic.
