The start of my journey

Adriana, 3rd March 2021


Hello! My name is Adriana and I am from Venezuela. 2 years ago, when I was 17 years old, I heard about a relatively new exchange program called Au Pair. At that time, I had to decide to which country I would travel. I researched a lot. My dream was to travel to the United States but after some deep investigation I realized that Germany was the right one for me. It is a beautiful country with a wonderful culture.

I knew that the German language is difficult, but I like challenges. I read that Germany is the most widely spoken language in Europe. More people speak German as their native language than any other language in Europe. Germany has the third largest economy in the world, and it is the economic powerhouse of the European Union and that is why knowing the language can offer great business opportunities.

I was so excited! I wanted to learn German right away. I started studying in Venezuela up to the level A2.1 (this level was the one required in the Au Pair program to be able to travel to Germany).  I got a host family that seemed very nice. I met them first through a video call. I got my ticket, and I was very close to traveling….

In my blog I will tell you about my impressions about Germany, how I decided to study with DeutschAkademie and how my German classes are going at the moment!
