Are Germans Rude? Killing the Stereotypes
Fluent in 3 Months
Rather than learning languages for academic or professional reasons, I do it to vastly improve my travel experience by allowing me to socialise almost entirely with residents of the country I am visiting.
Even though all the studying I did in for my exam in Berlin prevented me from socialising as much as I would have liked, after spending four months there I can say that I have a better understanding of German (and in particular Berlin) culture, and I am ready to challenge the silly stereotypes that too many people have of the Germans and the German language.
