Some words from Georgia Beardman currently in Germany.
I am on exchange in a small country town named Großefehn, in Germanys north west. I have been here 6 weeks now (1/3/06) and it has been fantastic! The weather is freezing!
School here is much more difficult than school in Australia, mainly because of the subject load. I must do 13 subjects a week including: Maths, physics, biol, chem, german, spanish, english and much more!
The language barrier has provided some interesting experiences, mainly people laughing, at my expense, but that's all part of the fun! The people in Germany are fantastic and have been very kind to me. This has definitely made settling in a lot easier.
I am looking forward to learning the language properly and seeing more of this great country...not to mention the rest of Europe also!
Thanks to Western Endeavour for providing this opportuntiy!
