View from school

After two weeks here, I know I have to learn German at lightening speed if I want to feel “at home” and not a forever tourist for the next three years. As mentioned in a previous post,  I bought Rosetta Stone and it really hasn’t helped as much as I would like. It also doesn’t provide me interactions with other people either. Today, I signed up for an intensive immersion class that takes place Monday-Friday – three hours sessions. Each level will take a month and there are a total of 12 levels. My goal is to get through as many as I possibly can and be successful at it. I can’t wait until the day that I can get around without using the phrase “Sprechen Sie Englisch?” People have been super friendly and helpful when I use it, but I truly want to make an effort to “fit in” as well.
