OOC: I'll do the same.


Johanna Leonie could've cried. "You're German," she practically shouted in their shared language. The foreign school suddenly seemed much less foreign. Between shared languages and home countries, and an instant reason to be friends, Johanna Leonie was much less lonely with Hilda around. Even the name 'Hilda' was comforting. "I'm Johanna Leonie," she added, using her full first name and shrugging lightly. People usually shortened it when they wanted to, and kept it when they thought it was nice sounding all together, so she didn't care too much what people did with her name at this point.

"I'm so glad we're in this together. Did you get what the man was saying at all?" Normally Johanna Leonie wouldn't be so fast to admit to a failing in this way, particularly when it was one she was supposed to have ironed out before coming here. In this case, her new friend was quite literally holding up a sign that said she didn't know English hardly anyway, so she was pretty sure there would be no judgment. "I caught...some of it. Just a little bit of it." She grimaced. How in the world were they going to get through classes this way? "Usually I love adventure, but this all feels like a bit much right now."
