Hi, I probably have a C1 level & want to do a Proficiency C2 test. Therefore I'd like to do a course for about 2 months in an Asian country. I do speak English daily since years, read books, watch movies & use google in English. My budget isn't particularly low but neither high. I can't or won't afford expensive classes in Great Britain, North America or Oceania. I traveled a lot in the last years & am able to feel at home in many places. I can imagine doing a course in Thailand, India, Vietnam or even in the Philippines (well, probably the least favourite as I really don't like the food in the Philippines but on the other hand it might be better as the locals speak English...) Any recommendations? It could be either a language school with group courses or a privat teacher which knows the requirements of the CPE test & can help me filling the gaps & pointing me in the right direction to pass the test... I estimate that 8 weeks of two private lessons per week or 8 weeks of 4 group lessons per week will be enough if I study hard beside classes... Has anybody done the same?
Hello, people. This is my first post on this forum. Please bear with me; I am currently 21 years old and from Norway. I have had German in school for a total of 6 years, and I am way above the expected level. I have already passed both a C1-course from the Goethe-Institute as well as a DSH-test from a German university with the grade of DSH-3 (top grade). Now my ''problem'' is the following; I really want to study medicine. And I really want to study medicine in Germany. I have quite good grades from High School, but I still need to add a few subjects to be able to apply for Medical School in Germany. So I have decided to enlist in the norwegian army. This enlistment will allow me to pursue the subjects I need, BUT; and this is basically the whole point of the thread; I wont be able to start medical school and thus move to Germany before after five years (Which means I'll be 26-27 when I move there). This petrifies me, as I am afraid that I won't have the same ability to learn German and properly immerse at that age as opposed to now. I really like Germany, so I would seriously consider to stay there , but I would like to learn the language as good and fluent/perfect as possible. Is this even possible at that age? I am not looking for motivational ''you can do ANYTHING!! :)'' kind of speeches, but more objective answers from experiemantal and/or''scientific'' points of view; please be realistic. And of course - in situations of uncertainty, like these, nothing is better than a story of success! Thank you in advance!
