I had a lot of fun attending the junior language course in Heidelberg because it wasn’t as stressful as in my school. I had a very nice teacher. What I liked best was that my class was international and we could talk about a lot of topics. The leisure activities were always very interesting! And the lunch was sooo delicious.Steven
