Five fun-filled weeks in Frankfurt
It is hard to believe, now that my 5 weeks on a German course in Frankfurt are drawing to a close, but when I arrived, I was actually quite nervous. A foreign country, a language I then hardly spoke and living with perfect strangers – of course I was nervous!
But when I saw the smiling face of my host mother, holding a sign with my name, I somehow knew everything would be all right – and I would come to realize that it would be so, so much more than that!
Upon arriving at my home for the following 5 weeks, I immediately felt most welcome. I had dinner with my host family and after getting over my initial shyness, I actually began joining in already. Everybody in Germany was so nice to me - My hosts, the teachers at the school, even random people on the street!
I enjoyed the course a great deal. I enjoyed my stay in Frankfurt. The course was exactly what I needed and the family were friendly. My accomodation was good. I had a nice room in a big house and had my own bathroom.
Great course - I enjoyed it.
