Hey! You can always submit something! All you have to do is send me a message (like this one) with some information about yourself (if you check out the penpal tag you’ll see what I mean), and then I’ll post it and people can contact you! Or, you can go through the tag and look for someone! It’s as easy as that :)
As you all know, reading books is a great way to learn any language. So one of my followers (dickterwhoo) suggested to set up a book exchange!
What’s a book exchange? Well, the motto is simple: Give a book, get a book. You ship one of your books to someone and in exchange this person sends another book back to you.
I have followers from all around the world (Germany included, of course), so this might be really cool - given that some of you participate!
If you are interested, please, please spread this by reblogging it and leave a message containing at least the following details:
- the country you live in
- your preferred language/s (meaning if you are for example German and want to exchange German books for Italian ones, you should make that clear)
Make sure your ask box is open (so that people can contact you) and I will publish your message tagged as “book exchange”. (It’s the same principle as deutschtaeglich’s or awesomefrench’s penpal tag.)
I hope at least some of you are going to do this, so happy reading! :)
Bringing this back because I gained a lot of followers lately and new ones keep coming in (hi). So maybe there are now a few more people here who would like to participate.
This is where you can find everyone offering books and looking for books.

Yes! :) I took the Goethe Exam so I had the chance to come back here and do my Masters :) So, if I’m lucky I’ll be back within another year or so!

Right now it’s more stressful than anything, but once I’m past airport security I can relax again! Until then I’ll be happy to be with my friends and try not to stress out too much!
I’m leaving Germany tomorrow. I literally don’t know where the time went. It’s so strange to think I’m going to be back in the US tomorrow!
Morgen verlasse ich Deutschland. Die Zeit ist so schnell vorbeigelaufen. Ich kann es kaum glauben, dass ich morgen wieder in den USA sein werde!
Today I learnt from a coworker that in some parts of Germany they call Wednesday Bergfest (mountain celebration), because it’s the peak of the week, and from there on you just wind down. My German teacher used to call Wednesdays hump days [!] for the same reason.
Not only Wednesdays. It can also refer to the middle of other time spans than a week, like e.g. a 2-week vacation’s “Bergfest” on day 7.
Fischen im Allgäu is a town in Bayern (Bavaria), Southern Germany, located 6 km north of the famous resort town of Oberstdorf. It was first mentioned in a cloister St. Gallen document in 860. There are 5,200 hotel beds in town and a lot of tourism in summer and winter as it is an ideal base for hiking tours, mountain biking, climbing, skiing, and other sports as well as tours to neighboring Austria. The local river is the Iller.
