Hello, I am George. I am from Georgia and I have spent my summer semester in RheinAhrCampus. Except of being a student, I also worked as an intern in Sprachen/Internationales, but at the same, time I still was a regular 20-year-old guy who wanted to have fun. Here I will share with you how I succeeded in all these three fields. It was my first exchange semester and of course, each moment, in the beginning, appeared special for me. I remember how the whole international team was trying to help us with integration with other students and in adaptation to the new lifestyle. We listened to a lot of pieces of advice from Dr. Rajah started from transportation and finished with trash dividing rules. I can call it “How to live in Germany” and it really helped me during the whole semester. Afterward, in the first week, Dr. Borgmann took us to the excursion to Cologne, where we had some pizza. I think it was the first what I did together with my new friends and I believe it really helped us to get to know each other better. The first big challenge for me during this exchange semester was giving a speech in German in front of the huge auditory filled with students. It was only a month when I started learning German and then giving a speech looked like too much for me, but as it appeared everything is possible. Regarding academic development, we had courses that really impressed me. I have taken the “International Business Simulations” course, where we launched a simulated company with a real project. Working on real tasks with different challenges appeared interesting to me. Also, I had the “Intercultural Communications” course, where every week Dr. Borgmann was asking us about our intercultural experiences from the last week. During this class, I have heard a lot about different cultures and how one and the same things happen differently in the different parts of the world. Except for all these, I had the opportunity to take the TOEFL exam with Dr. Faulstich and it is for free for all RheinAhrCampus Students. While being an intern I worked as a course assistant, I was involved in different projects, like in international week, which was one of the greatest events in RheinAhrCampus. I got more proficient with MS Office, Photoshop and other programs. I strongly believe that the experience I gained while being an intern will be useful in my future career. But, do you remember I said that I still was a regular 20-year-old guy? Except for academic development and a busy schedule with different classes and internship shift hours, I still had an amazing opportunity to explore Europe. I have managed to visit the Netherlands, France, Italy, and different great cities of Germany. I will never forget my first semester abroad in Remagen because it was awesome for many reasons.
