Hallo zusammen, and hey to all y’all!
My name is Will Thomas. I am a current 2019-2020 program participant with the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals, a yearlong fellowship in Germany funded by the German Bundestag and U.S. Department of State. This is my second post providing on-the-ground perspectives on the program. If you don’t know much about CBYX yet, make sure to read my first impressions from the program here.
In this post, I wanted to share my experiences from the U.S. orientation that prepared us CBYX-ers to go to Germany as well as my experiences at language school in Radolfzell am Bodensee and how I was able to use my German language skills to my advantage.
If you enjoy reading about my experience, consider applying for the next program! The next CBYX program application deadline is December 1.
