In just under one month the 2014 World Cup will begin in Brazil. To celebrate, we’ve invited bloggers from around the world to talk about their experiences during the Cup. Today we’d like to introduce one of those bloggers, an economics and German student who spent a semester in Heidelberg. Take it away Ian:
I am currently a student at the University of Oregon dual-majoring in Economics and German language. I spent last spring and summer at the beautiful Universität Heidelberg, and it really confirmed my love for Deutschland. I’ve been learning the language for about 2.5 years now, and I really enjoy my studies and German culture. For a long time I was like most typical Americans and really didn’t give the sport of soccer much thought, thinking it was “too little scoring and too much flopping”.
