Abstract

This paper is based on the experience of its author who went to Germany to conduct research work in the area of fluid dynamics, a branch of science/engineering that deals with fluid motion, e.g. of air (wind, smoke), water (in rivers, oceans), oil, blood, or glacier. The research work in Germany was funded through a scholarship awarded to the author by the organization DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst - German Academic Exchange Service). The scholarship included a four-month German language course at the Goethe Institut. This paper summarizes the author's experiences at learning and using German, both at the Goethe Institute and thereafter.
