After seven months in Deutsch Akademie, I am finally saying goodbye to this place! I had my first German course here starting with “Guten Tag” and “Wie geht’s,” and I have come a long way. Yesterday might have been the official last day of the fourth week of an intensive course, but to my class, today was basically the last day. We had our exam yesterday, and today we met up at a cafe called cafe Mendez near Karlsplatz.
I have had a few classes with some of my current classmates, but none of them is returning back for B.2.2 next month. And I also figured I wanted to take a break and possibly use the time to do a bit more traveling around, particularly since I do not need B2 official certificate. However, we talked that since many of us are will still be in the city, we will plan regular get togethers.
Earlier this morning, we met up at Deutsch Akademie, and walked over to the cafe together. We talked mainly about what our plans were after this course, particularly for those who are not returning next month or are in Vienna temporarily. I wanted to give a shout out to our friend, Irena, for finishing her master’s thesis, which is one of the main reasons for not returning next month. She will be traveling back and forth to Italy for her defense and tying loose ends to complete her degree!
