Wien Endlich…

Posted March 31st, 2014 by Charlotte in Vienna, Austria

I cannot believe a month has already passed since I’ve been in Vienna! My love for this city has only grown more and more each day- especially with the absolutely beautiful weather we’ve been having! Unlike in Schwäbisch Hall where I was mostly hanging out with the other American kids in the program, I am…

Past Month in Schwäbisch Hall

Posted March 5th, 2014 by Charlotte in Vienna, Austria

This past month at the Goethe Institut has been eye opening, humbling, and has made me even more excited to get back to Vienna. I have certainly been kept busy and a lot has changed since my last post in the beginning of the month! The other students in the Central College Abroad group are…

Christmas Markets, Visa fun, just another two weeks in Vienna

Posted November 25th, 2013 by Anthony in Vienna, Austria

  Hello again from Vienna! As always, I must excuse myself for not being better about keeping up with the blog.. but the truth is, I guess there‘s not always something new day to day to blog about! A typical day for me is not overwhelming different from at home–first thing in the morning, coffee…

And after quite a long pause…

Posted November 5th, 2013 by Anthony in Vienna, Austria

I am back! It has been quite a long time since my last post, and for that I must apologize. Truth be told, I have been busy. Even if classes are a bit less labor-intensive than a typical U.S. class, doing it all in German more than makes up for it, not to mention I…

Haus Salzburg, Museen, Classes and more

Posted October 10th, 2013 by Anthony in Vienna, Austria

Another week down, and it hardly feels like it. We’re all finally settled into our final dorms, and this time with roommates!

Learning German and the German Way

Posted September 6th, 2013 by Anthony in Vienna, Austria

Well, we’re quickly approaching the two week mark since getting to Schwäbisch Hall and I figured I’d post a blog about the reason we came here–to learn German. Life in Schwäbisch Hall has been fantastic so far. Lots to do, people to meet, places to see. (for an update on our recent excursion to Bamberg…

Angekommen

Posted September 6th, 2013 by Anthony in Vienna, Austria

It has been a long, long, long…. long way, but I am finally settled into my Wohnheim in Schwäbisch Hall. Thirty-eight hours, two plane rides, a lost bag, two trains, a bus, followed by interviews, tests, and registration–all in German, of course–plus our welcome dinner with our fantastic program director Ruth, and I can honestly…
