Wonderful experience in Berlin with API!

I absolutely loved my time in Berlin with API! There was a good balance between independence and help and support in the city and with the the university which I greatly appreciated.

I had a homestay, which was among the best parts of my experience! I lived a 30 minute bus ride away from the university and a 45 minute train ride from other sites in Berlin. Academically, the program was strong, especially with the intensive German courses. The program administration, both with API and from Freie Universitaet, was quite good. Communication was largely clear and relevant, and they both provided us with excursions that were both informative and fun.

I wish there had been more courses offered in German, as well as more of a focus on cultural immersion, as I spent a great deal of time with the other North American students in my classes.
