Our German bloggers will be bringing you weekly blog posts from Dülmen and Herford in the northwest of Germany. Meet Holly and Daniel:
My name is Holly, I’m 19 and I’m a student from Scotland. This year I am working as an English language assistant in a town called Dülmen which is near Münster. I study French, German and Spanish at the University of Glasgow because I absolutely love languages. I also love to dance and meet up with my friends.
This year I really want to improve my German and learn more about the culture. I have already made a few German friends so that will be good for my German. I also really want to do a lot of travelling this year around Germany.
Hallo! My name is Daniel and I’m from the southwest of Scotland. I study French, German and Spanish at the University of St Andrews and was an active member in the university’s German Society, before I left for my year abroad. Since primary school, I have always been fascinated by languages and chose St Andrews because it’s the only Scottish university where I can study all the languages I studied at school until the end of my degree. At university I also study Russian and Arabic at evening classes.
I look forward to improving my knowledge of the German language during my year abroad and to letting you all know about my experiences in the coming weeks! Bis bald!
