Our German exchange student left today. He was here for 2 weeks, but I only got to hang out with him for like 5 days or so. His English was pretty good; he'd spoken it for 8 years. I noticed that a lot of times he wouldn't know the exact verb that goes with a phrase (e.g. "to set a fire") so he used the word "make" a lot. He knew a lot of words that I wouldn't expect; my dad started to talk about an octopus, and Basti knew what that was. It was pretty cool. More stories to come later, when I feel like typing.
