I can get behind that. Can't you get that kind of attitude in the US? Is that why you don't want to move?

Academia in the US is dying-- especially the humanities. Not to mention, as a language professor in the US, you have to spend about 40% of your time teaching beginning language classes to people who are only there to fulfil a requirement. Here, those classes are in Gymnasium (high school, sort of). That means professors teach the actual intellectual parts.

Also America is generally suffocating :P

Interesting. I've never met anyone my generation with joy for academic work. Thank you for sharing.

Yeah, I hadn't either. That's why I want to stay here :)
