“While I certainly learned much about Germany and my classmates, professors, tutors, and sponsors during my stay, I must say I learned more about myself than I thought I would. This month was a crash course me figuring out the sorts of activities I liked, the sorts of people and personalities I liked being around, and the sort of community I wanted to be a part of. It was uplifting being around so many sweet people of different cultures and experiences."
(Kyle Stevens, USA, ISU 2019)
“It is not only beautiful to walk around German cities and see the mixture of old architecture with modern, but it is a reminder of how much history has served to develop these traditions and values. It is incredible visiting cities and monuments I have only learned of in class (…) and it is a reminder of why German is worth learning and exploring further.”
(Halina Maas, USA, ISU 2019)
