Hello everybody!

I am Christine, a 26-year-old student from Germany. I am going to leave Düsseldorf next saturday to Boston, to stay there for five weeks and go to a language school. I will stay with a guestfamily in Winthrop.

I am really looking forward to staying in Boston, because this fulfills a desire I have had since I was young: I always wanted to go to the States, but not as a tourist. I always wanted to live there, meet the people and feel the culture. I wanted to stay in the US when I was in school as a high school exchange student, after graduating from school and after finishing the training on the job. But it never worked out.
This spring I finished an internship and decided to make my dream come true - before I will start to work next year. Because then it will be much harder to take a longer time off. So I am going to fly to Boston in July - and I am really excited!

I would like to meet nice people and get in touch with the American culture. Where do I have to go? Where are the best places to meet people? Maybe there is a website fot meet people?
It sounds like I want to date - but although I am single, that's not my request. I just want see as much as possible of Boston and the US. And in my opinion it's the easiest way by meeting locals.

Thank you so much! I am really excited.. only one week left, before my plane departures...

Welcome Christine. I don't know of any social sites that I can recommend but I know there are very many different kinds of networking events. Since you are a student you should find out about the activities all around boston's major universities. They often have free events and concerts for you to take advantage off. That could be a way to meet people. Good luck.
