This past summer I took a German class in Berlin for a month. I really enjoyed this class as is was extremely different than another class I have taken before in school. It was made up of people ranging from 15 to 50-year-olds, which is extremely different from the 19 to 24-year-old range almost all my classes have been in so far. Another interesting aspect is that this class was taken in a language learning center and the students were taking the course because they truly wanted to learn the language. It is true that students in the university courses want to learn, but many times, courses are taken just to complete degree requirements. That being said, the vibes in this class were extremely positive and at times intimidating because everyone would spend a lot of time outside of class studying and practicing. At the end of the class though, my German level drastically went up.
