What's a good place to buy groceries in bulk at a reasonable price? There's a possibility that my Student Hall will be self-catered, so I want to have that covered in advance (I already know how to cook and am not picky).
>>1046885 I studied abroad in marburg, germany for 2 semesters and it was fantastic. I loved the parties, meeting people from all over the world on a daily basis, and just taking in everything with an open mind. Please do not be that shitty american that just talks shit about things he/she doesnt understand.
Avoid only hanging out with other americans/your exchange group... americans are notorious for this. It really stifles the experience.. it breeds misunderstanding and resentment. Be open curious, germans are very friendly, helpful people.
During the first semester i barely interacted with people in my exchange group because i managed to make friends with some locals and ended up meeting tons. In the months that followed i got to see the real germany with/through them. Not to mention i found a plug for every party drug.
The second semester i definitely hung out a lot more with a solid group of americans/canadians/australians and made great friends with many, and as good a time as that was, i still preferred that first semester...
>>1048635 >americans are notorious for this. I think any group is, really, if there's a lot of them around especially. I think Americans who speak a bit of German usually try to mix it up. IME, Spaniards, Italians and Chinese are the fucking worst at 'integrating'. Majority of them stick to each other, only ever speaking their language, barely bothering with anything else. Makes you wonder why they wanted to come here if they're just going to replicate a little Spanish/Italian bubble while here.
t. a German person.
