A crazy adventure!
With the five-month exchange at EBS in Germany, I saw so many amazing sights and was able to gather valuable experiences that changed my view of the world!
First, German universities have special practical teaching models that differ from the traditional and theoretical Chinese type. The courses at EBS are not only knowledgeable, but also attractive. In addition, the intensive international group discussions and multicultural team spirit make a lot of sense. It can be painful at times, but it can also be very rewarding.
Second, during the days in Wiesbaden I thought deeply about how Germans enjoy their everyday lives. Not always working hard for money or status, but also having fun in life and really enjoying every moment. Respecting other people's jobs, finding and pursuing one's own hobby, traveling around...
Last but not least, it is a great opportunity to make new and reliable friends for life. Even though we come from different cultures, speak different languages, do different things, we could always find a bar, discuss the exciting soccer games, talk about difficult exams, meet nice people etc. or just lie in a park together and spend the afternoon in the Enjoy the sunshine. Germans are very warm-hearted and really want to help everyone they meet.
For me, life in Germany is not just an exchange semester, but an adventure, a breakthrough, a refreshment.
Thank you, Deutschland!
