First of all, classes organized by RWTH were awesome. I could learn what you are not able to learn in other colleges, because of the tremendous facility and abundant knowledge, which means I could broaden my mind and discover what I wanted to do. There were some German classes, which were very fun. I am also interested in German too, so this class has motivated us to study German. Secondly, it's the communication with students at RWTH. I was stimulated by them, realized how it is important to be able to speak English fluently, and now I try to improve the skill of English. Also I could gain an international perspective and way of thinking. Thirdly, events hosted by RWTH, like city trips and factory tours were good opportunities to understand Germany. My understanding of German deepened by actually seeing them.
