Three to four years ago I gradually developed an interest in Japanese culture. Two and a half years ago I started learning Japanese. One year ago I got in touch with the University of Freiburg regarding the possibility of studying abroad in Japan. Now, after two semesters in Freiburg, I'm about to start a year at 松山大学 as an exchange student.
I've never lived or studied outside of Baden-Württemberg, so I'm really excited about how such an amount of change will affect me. I'm also super hyped that I will finally be able to invest pretty much ALL MY TIME into improving my language skills. So far I always had to fit language learning somewhere inbetween while my bachelor's or master's degree were the quasi obligatory main thing.
Preparations are as good as done. Journey starts Sep 8th. Updates will be tagged #MYJ15. :)
