I spent two months in Vienna to learn German. It was the first time I went to Vienna. This city, its old buildings, is so beautiful! My host family gave me a very warm welcome. The classes at the school fitted my language level perfectly. I met a lot of people from other countries, I admired the horses from the Spanish riding school and I visited the Belvedere. And once again I made new friends. For all these reasons, I can say that this trip was a very good experience. I will certainly make a second trip to Vienna.

I have been living in Vienna for nearly four months and my stay is drawing to an end... what a shame! I decided to travel to Austria rather than Germany because it is a country I didn’t know and which, I must say, intrigued me a lot. I don’t regret my choice at all; Vienna is not only a place with great culture (operas, museums, Hundertwasser house, etc.) but also a city where the Wiener dialect and the warmth of the locals keep you under the spell. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the world than in this capital. In a matter of three months and a half, I have not only improved my German - much more than I have during all my school years -, but I have also met people I will never forget. Thanks to them, I was able to visit Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, which are not as far away as I thought. I would add that the teachers (all young, between 23 and 35 years) always give us advice about the best restaurants, bars and clubs in town. In short, this is an experience I will never forget.

I don’t know if you've heard stories about Vienna, but they’re probably true. Before I left I heard stories about a city with culture, museums and a rich history. Now after a few weeks Vienna I must say that I didn’t have enough time. There’s so much to do in Vienna. If you like shopping, there are big shopping malls. If you like museums, there are more than 100. I think there are more pubs than museums, where you can eat a cake or drink beer. There’s so much to do. We have lessons in groups of about 10-12 students. Every week you will learn more about a subject, last week for example it was "Relativsätze". At the end of the week you take a test, so the school can see if you understand everything well. The school is small and you will get to know a lot of people during excursions. This is very useful, because you can speak German with them. That helped me a lot while I was learning the language. You also get to know a lot of different cultures. To improve my German, I talk a lot with my host family.
