Guten tag, and thank you for stopping by my little experiment, Violett Rucksack!
Here’s the deal: I want to go on an academic exchange to Germany. I don’t speak German. All the courses I want to take will be offered in – wait for it – German! The program starts about 10 months from now, so I have about a year to try to teach myself all things German – language, geography, history, etc. – so that I will, hopefully, not crash and burn.
Violett Rucksack is meant for personal motivation as I work towards this goal, but my hope is that my (mis)adventures can help others looking to head to another country for a semester or more. And if anyone else out there is Germany-bound, drop me a line! Maybe we can help each other get ready.
