One of the highlights of my life was the nearly three years that I spent in Vienna, Austria. I was there to attend an LL.M. course in international tax law at the Wirtschaftsuniversität, the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
While living in Vienna, I did my best to integrate myself into the local culture. Needless to say, it was easier said than done.
The biggest issue, not surprisingly, was language. While students in Austria must take several years of English classes to graduate from high school, the official language, after all, is German. And outside the tourist district – and the classroom – that’s about the only language you hear, other than a smattering of English, French, Russian, and even Arabic.
