TESTIMONIALS

My stay in Freiburg is really good. I really like the courses and the fact that we have different teachers during the week. Also the excursions that the school offers are really interesting! At the beginning it was difficult to get integrated in the class, since most of the students were already here and knew eachother. But then, when the new students come every week it is very easy, we always go talk to them, ask them where they are from and form a new group of friends! There are many French speakers here, so sometimes you are quite tempted to talk in French! Freiburg is a big city for me, since I come from a smaller town. But it´s perfect, there is everything we need and a lot of things to do! My host family is great, we have a good relationship. They are very nice and we do things together such as going for a walk or hiking. I was worried at the beginning that the food wouldn´t be good, but it´s really delicious and there is always a lot to eat!

I chose Freiburg as I wished to stay in a small town close to Switzerland. From Freiburg, it is easy to get backhome if needed. I have also heard that Freiburg is a nice and vivid city. Looking back I can say that I’m happy with my choose. The enrolment went quiet easy. I had a contact person at the agency who knew an answer to all my questions. I received fast answers and we mostly talked over the phone. I like Freiburg and it was what I wished for. The classes are good to get used to the language and to repeat some things. It is great that classes are held in German only – this is how you learn most vocabulary. It is also interesting and challenging to talk to students in German, even if they do have the same mother tongue. It’s a great feeling if it’s working! In the 2 weeks I spent in Freiburg I have learnt a lot. I enjoyed the activities as well. I went to Mundenhof and Heidelberg. It was nice to visit another town. The movie night was also good to make use of German. This afternoon I will also go to the activity “Bouldern”. Living in the host family was a great experience. I wanted to stay in a family with children and no other students which was very good. The family lives in a quiet location, lika a small village. That was nice. I have talked a lot with the family, also with the children. If I do have the time, I would possibly take another trip to Freiburg again.

New Zealand is the perfect opposite country from Switzerland (on the planet) and I heard the landscape and beaches were amazing. When I arrived I felt very quickly well integrated and the atmosphere in the class was really nice. When I arrived in NZ I could not speak any English as I haven`t learnt at school. I started at Elementary level and I am now in Intermediate which is a good achievement for me. Now I feel more comfortable to speak in the city, ask things in shops and understand when local people talk to me. The teachers, they are amazing. They helped me to reach my target. I lived in Berlin before, so you can imagine that it was easy to adapt in such a small city as Auckland. I went to the Museum to discover about the Maori culture, I took the ferry a few times to visit Devonport, Waiheke Island. I think it is a nice city, the way of living is very nice and people are easy going and easy to approach. Now I am heading up North, in Waipu, for 2 weeks as I found a job as a technical carpenter, which is matching with my diploma and my work in Switzerland. It is so exciting to do this here in NZ as I will be able to put this down on my CV. After that I am planning on buying a Campervan and travel around NZ for 2 weeks. Then I will head to Tasmania for a week and travel around Australia for a month, before heading back home in May as I have to go back to work at some stage.
