I'm going to be living in Berlin for a month, studying. I'm a USA traveler looking for information! Any travel savvy mefites and/or Germans want to help me out?

Pretty self explanatory. I've never been out of the country before, and so this is a pretty big step for me. I'll be living with a host (family, person, I'm not sure), continuing my study of German. I'm sure my hosts will help me out quite a lot, but I have some questions before I head out. I will probably take the opportunity to travel during the weekends. Are there train or bahn passes that I should buy in America? I heard something from a friend about passes that have to be bought in the country of origin. I'm not sure about that though...
I'll be there for all of July. What's going on? Any festivals?
Where should I eat? What should I see?
Tell me anything else you think I should know.
