I am a native German speaker, who, in 1993 moved from Austria to London. Since then I have enjoyed an exciting and varied working life in the catering, sales and marketing industries before, in 2008, starting to retrain as a German language tutor and becoming a language coach at the independent language school Lingua Diversa. Apart from language tutoring I co-host complete immersion Spanish courses in Medina de Rioseco, a medieval town in Spain, and run German cinema, writing, speaking and grammar workshops throughout London.
In my blog you will find me talking about my interests and passions and as I consider myself to be a bit of a hybrid, that is, part of me feels Austrian, another Spanish and the biggest part British – even though I have to admit, I’d probably never become a ‘real’ Brit – you will find me talking about my experiences in Spain, London and hopefully soon about my past/present Austrian experiences, which I have neglected a bit over the past years.
So, let’s see how I’ll get on with this blogging-idea of mine and I really hope that you, my dear-reader-who-has-found-this-blog, enjoy browsing through the blog entries.
