I’m Raffaele and I decided to open this blog for different reasons.
First of all, I’ve always enjoyed writing. However, I needed an interesting and, above all, useful topic in order to open a blog. As a matter of fact, my aim is to be a reference point for whoever wants to do something similar, but more importantly to share with you my experiences and to learn from one another.
To start with, there is the question I asked myself before my choice.
WHY WOULD I TAKE PART INTO THE ERASMUS PROGRAM?
I decided to leave after considering several important aspects. The main reason is
the possibility of improving my knowledge of the language and trying to be a good student in a complitely different uni system. Aside from the uni career, I saw this experience as a
good starting point for a future career.
Last but not least, there are some personal reasons: having a full immersion in a new culture, facing my worries and moments of uncertainty, meeting people from different countries and distancing myself from routine.
WHERE AND FOR HOW LONG?
I decided to go to Paderborn, a northern city in Germany, for two semesters.
That’ s all for today, though my intention would be to give you some periodical
descriptions of my experience (which will start on September, 1st), focusing my attention both on points chosen by me and on your curiosities, as well.
Quick information: I decided to use English as second language of my blog to allow my friends and new readers to have access to any content I’ll post in Italian.
I hope to read your comments soon and stay tuned to see new articles! 🙂
