Time flies when you are having fun – this is indeed true when it comes to Chane and her time in Ingolstadt, Germany. It is hard to believe that she has been there for nearly a month already.

Apart from a few hiccups, things seem to be going very well. Chane has been attending lectures for 3 weeks now and was pleasantly surprised at how small the classes were. Accents and various foreign jargons still catch her out from time to time so she ensures that she listens carefully in class.  


Something that she needs to become accustomed to, is the fact that the class doesn’t write any tests or complete assignments during the semester. In order to pass the subject, a student relies solely on their exam mark. She also needs to overcome her strange fear of language teachers….yes, you heard right….language teachers. She is currently taking 4 modules (3 subjects and 1 language module)


Chane is still thinking about NMMU and said that it feels strange to know that we are preparing for the November exams while she is only starting her semester. She is also still flying the WELA flag high while in Germany, as is evident from the pic below.
