The intensity of the German intensiveVienna, Fall 2009

For the first 3 weeks of the IES Vienna fall semester all students are required to take part in a 5 day a week German Intensive course.  Intense is a perfect adjective to describe the experience, but far from the only adjective.  The German intensive course was a good balance of class time and excursions-which for my class included a delicious trip to Café Central and a guided tour (in German) of the Leopold Museum.  While 3 and a half hour daily class was exhausting at times,  the exhaustion was only my brain straining to understand as much German as possible…so possible adjectives to describe the 3 week German intensive- intense, beneficial, fun, exhausting, informative, and last but not least mind-blowing.

(Hint: I traveled to Florence, Italy to visit my girlfriend Rachel, who is studying in Florence for the semester.)
