Goodbyes are always difficult. In a few weeks, my semester at Peking University will come to an end and with it my engagement at its German Faculty. It was a beautiful and eventful time in which I was able to make new friends, meet great colleagues and teach excellent students. With the third year student, I started a project this fall, a German blog, to collect their stories and to document their/our experiences living in Peking and studying German as a foreign language. It’s an ongoing project that will hopefully be cultivated further throughout the years, so that a little bit of our shared time and comittment stays in Beijing. I defenitely hope to see each other again, in Vienna or China.
