Read my blog

I have just finished my first undergraduate year doing Germanic studies with ab initio Spanish. For this blog, I will talk about my experience of the summer course (Deutsch als Fremdsprache) which I’ll be taking during August. Firstly, I know that Germany is a hugely popular destination for students from across the globe, so I’d like to get an understanding of why that is. Secondly, there isn’t too much information available online about summer courses, so I’d like to write about my experience so that future summer course participants know what to expect. Finally, I have never visited Düsseldorf before and can’t wait to explore what it has on offer! Hopefully I can suggest some places worth seeing.
