This is my first time ever writing a blog post, so I thought I would tell you some things about me and about what I want to be talking (writing? blogging? I don’t know blogger language yet…) about on here. But first things first, let me introduce myself:
My name is Valerie and I’m a 21-year-old university student from Germany. I’m studying French and Geography to become a teacher and if all goes well, I’ll finish my bachelor degree this summer and start my master degree in October. I started my studies in 2014 when I first spent one year studying at the Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität in Mainz, the following year I moved to France where I studied at université de Bourgogne in Dijon and after that, I went to study in Canada at université de Sherbrooke in Quebec. I love travelling so the programme I choose was perfect for me.
My exchange year in Canada is one of the things I want to talk about on here and I’m planning to write a few post about the things I did there and I might also talk about my programme and how to get your visa and what I packed etc. I’m back in Germany since less than three months, so other than talking about Canada I will most probably be talking about my life as a student in Germany, sharing some recipes with you (I love cooking and baking) and maybe talk about my future travel plans or favourite books. Let’s go on this journey together and see where it takes us!
My native language isn’t English but I decided to write this blog in English so my friends that don’t speak German get a chance to read it and I thought that after three years without any English lessons it would be a great way to get back into speaking/ writing English. So if there are mistakes I’d be more than happy to correct them if you tell me (in a nice way obviously).
Lots of love!
