As I said in my last progress video in German I didn’t achieve my goal in Germany, which was to reach the B2 level in German. I consider that my level is higher than a B1, but I’m still a little far from being a solid B2.
But what is the difference?
Here is my progress video on my last day in Germany. I woke up at 6 am and the first thing I did was recording the video.
Can you tell the difference between my video before traveling and this one? What should I’ve done to be able to achieve the level B2 in German?

The German language is famous for the relatively long words. The reason is that in German is common to combine two words or more to form a new one with its own meaning. This makes the creation of new words in the language very simple and that’s the reason there are so many unique words in German. Here are some I find very interesting.
Zugzwang = Zug (move) + Zwang (being forced)
Have you ever felt trapped, forced to take a decision? That’s what the word “Zugzwang” describes. The term comes from the chess and describes the moment the chess player is forced to make a move that will surely worsen his game.
Nowadays, “Zugwang” describes the pressure to make a strategic move, to make an important decision.
