Berlin, Germany - cheap, finger on the pulse  Berlin is teeming with an amazing range of cheap places to go out and is a very young, lively, interesting city. There's loads to do, with some great bars and clubs to explore. My advice would be to arrive early, do a bit of research before you go especially on accommodation and bureaucracy, and try your best to find a free language course while you’re there. That way, as you learn new vocab and grammar you can compile a list of questions and then have the answers explained properly by a native speaker.

Useful local words: 'Gell'.

What not to pack: Too many DVDs - the cinema's cheap here.

What to pack: Travel plug adaptors.

Couldn't have done without: My student card.

Word of advice: Ask at the local university or have a go at some conversation exchange with a local – you might even make a new group of friends out of it!
