My experience in Germany has been absolutely wonderful. Or, as one might say in German, wunderschön (literally--wonder pretty).
I set out to learn about a new culture, meet new people, and learn a new language. In addition to having success in those endeavors, I enjoyed every step of the journey.
In my encounters, I've found the German people to be exceedingly welcoming to visitors. Some stereotypes say the opposite, but I believe those presuppositions are broken by a simple smile 😊
To future exchange students who want to get the best of their experience: I recommend you learn as much German as possible, make plenty of friends, and attend all the parties and excursions.
