What class has been the hardest for you?
“American literature because it is difficult for me to find the words in a different language and express myself in a literature in a different language.”
What is the biggest difference between our school and your school in Germany?

What will you miss most when you go home?
“Definitely my friends”
What is the best thing you have eaten in America?

“laughs”I’m German. People find me more interesting when I tell them that I’m an exchange student.”
