I’m so tired of people telling me German is an “ugly, angry” language. When my German teacher tells us jokes it’s the sweetest, happiest language in the world. When I teach my father the word for daughter he smiles, repeating “Tochter” to himself until he gets it right, and in that moment German sounds like pride. There’s nothing angry or ugly about a language that never says goodbye, only “until we meet again.”
when I was living with my german exchange student, I made a lot of friends. some of the really close friends I made told me they believe we will meet again. “Man trifft sich immer zwei mal im Leben.” which means (a direct quote from Inga) “you always meet the same person twice in life” one of the most hopeful things I’ve heard in a while :)

Yale is a really expensive school, why not just use a state university with in school tuition about $12,000 a year as an example? also, wasn’t one dollar worth more back then than it is now? I am sure they didn’t have to work as hard as people today, but I bet the tuition woulda still been expensive to them. correct me bc I’m probably wrong but ya!
