Default Re: Master's degree anyone?

I'm doing my Masters in Clinical and Experimental Linguistics at a University in Germany. I will also admit that it's been pretty hard studying in a foreign country particularly because I never feel like my German is good enough to deal with therapy and doctors' appointments and English-speaking specialists are hard to find. Also they don't have HIPAA here so even basic things like accommodations at your university are different. For example, I would have to disclose the nature of my illness to each individual professor in order to get accommodations for it. I don't really want to do this because these are the same profs writing my rec letters for a possible PhD. Because of this, and since I haven't been doing great lately, I now have to spend an extra semester finishing up my degree.

Given all of that, I am really glad that I did this program. It gave me the opportunity to finally get some distance from my family and actually learn to be more independent. It was just bad timing for me because I was diagnosed 2 months before I moved to another country, so I had to learn how to deal with my illness while not being super comfortable with the language.

Nice, I have a bachelor's in Spanish as well (in addition to a bachelor's in philosophy).

I'm in Buenos Aires. It's where I studied abroad in 2017, additionally.

So cool that you studied in Rosario, as well!

Yup master's degree in physics education. Done with the physics part, now working on the education part. Really excited to become a physics teacher, and have enough experience to know that is what I want to be, but the assignements I have to do to get my certification are killing me.
