June was basically the language course month. I spent four weeks in a language course which was a great experience and an opportunity to meet people from other countries like Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Lebanon, Libya, India, Mexico, South Korea etc. This gave me a chance to get to know other countries by having a chat with those guys. It was amazing. We were like a big family from different countries, because we all got along with each other so well. It was not easy at all to say goodbye on the last day of the language course (25 June).
About the German language itself - I can now have a conversation, but I don´t want to lie; sometimes I know what to say but it´s hard to put it in the right words. Especially when someone only wants to speak deutsch. I then just freeze and go: Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch (I speak a little German). But I try to get better.
On the morning of the 25th we did presentations about the organisations that we have been working with back home to some German school kids and their teachers. I really enjoy talking about WhizzKids United. There was one teacher who asked me if it is possible that we could do our presentations in schools and the kids liked the fact that there are organisations that work closely with communities. I think that it was a great thing to do and I noticed that German kids don´t know that some countries are not developed as Germany.
We had a nice trip to Kletterwald Kraxelmaxel in Oldenburg. It was a great experience. I always thought that I am afraid of height, but I think I was fooling myself. It was simply because I have never got a chance to test myself before. I am saying this because when I got there, I got too excited. I kept trying and trying different levels and it was an amazing experience. I would like to get a chance to do it again I wouldn´t let it pass me by.
We also went to see the beautiful Sportgarten. It is a unique place for people to come and play. It has a skating court, basketball field, two soccer fields and beach volleyball. It is awesome place. I liked it from the first sight. It is a wonderful place. I know skating is not a popular thing in S.A, but here you can find a 6 year old skating and you can see that kids enjoy this. What I liked the most is that parents are also part of it. Some come and play with their kids and even if they are not playing, they can just stay around. It is not like they are being forced to do it, because they can just drop their kids and fetch them later, and some come on their own, but most parents are involved and they are responsible for their kids.
Ich mag Deutschland und Ich find Deutschland sehr schön. (I like Germany and I find Germany very beautiful)
