So far, it has been super awkward with my flatmates (Mitbewohner). It really shouldn’t be that awkward, but I’m so uncomfortable that I have trouble bringing myself to talk to them. It’s going better now! Yesterday, I spoke to Ning twice. He’s from China and his German is not better than mine, which is a relief, because the other Mitbewohner are actually German. I also talked to Nadja, who is a German physics student from Bavaria. We spoke in English, but that’s mostly because I was out too late last night and can’t even think about German right now.
I found out that a new flatmate should move in any day now, so I won’t be the newest anymore.
