Today was the first day of classes. We had Intensive Beginning German from 9:20 to 12:40. I learned how to say the alphabet and some phrases for introducing yourself. It was a little challenging, especially since I haven't had classes in about 2 months! We had a half hour break somewhere in between and a few of us decided to go to the student cafe the teacher mentioned. It took us practically 15 minutes just to find it! The building used to be a prison, so the floor plan is crazy. We had to go down a few flights of stairs, many winding hallways, and finally found the secret staircase, which wasn't actually that far from our classroom after all.
Also, I finally got my cell phone! Yeaahhhh! Facebook chat has been our soul means of communication when we aren't together, so this will make things much easier :)
