Out of Touch with the US


After midterms I had written 20+ pages of German in the course of a week. I guess I got a little carried away, and ended up writing the email to my family in German, too! (My family doesn’t speak German, so I had to re-write it in English) At least, I know writing German comes so easily for me now, haha. It shows just how much I learned through this program. Ask me three months ago to write in German, and it would take me hours to write just a page of it.
