My name is Malin and I am fifteen years old. Like many students I am going to spend the next school year abroad. Unlike many students I am going to spend that year in Estonia. For those, who don’t know: Estonia is the northernmost country of the Baltic States, the capital city is Tallinn and they speak Estonian there.
Yes, I am from Germany, still I’m going to
write in English, here are some reasons for that:
- I want to give my host family the opportunity to read my articles
- I like writing in English – better than writing in German – even though I speak German better than English
- Also I do not think I want to write in German during my exchange year. There, I think, I’ll want to speak (and write) as little German as possible
I hope you will enjoy my blog posts anyway and hopefully they will give you a good impression about Estonia and spending an exchange year there.
