    Isn't there three types of high school? Realschule, Hauptschule and Gymnasium? If I remember correctly, German pupils are streamed after 4th grade, and go to the corresponding schools.

    If I might be so intrusive, which branch? (Army here) I plan to make Germany one of my next requests for an overseas tour. That is, after I finish up South Korea :D

    I have two years of conversational German under my belt, and I plan to get a more in-depth working knowledge of the language. Beautiful culture. I've been there once, as a part of a trip to Europe.

    I too was in Germany as part of a military operation (training), and can say that the German people were the nicest of any country that I ever visited. We were in a smallish port city, and had a great time.

    As to the language barrier, don't ever think that there is one. English is a required language for them to learn to advance in school, so they know it.

    Me and a buddy of mine got friendly with a couple of the local women, so were able to learn a bit of the culture. It was kind of funny to see some of the US Servicemen sitting in an outdoor cafe thinking that the locals couldn't understand what they said. Some of them learned their mistake. :D

    Basically, if you have the opportunity to get some foreign culture, then jump on it. I visited places that I'll never have the chance to see again, and still enjoy the memories of them.

    also.. when you guys went to germany did you go anywhere else in Europe.. I heard you can catch a train to france for 20 bucks and it only takes a few hours because they travel at 240km/hour! :)
