My name is Chiara and I am 24 years old. I am Spanish although I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I live in Palma, the capital city of Mallorca, a beautiful Spanish island in the Mediterranean see.
I arrived to Munich on the 3rd of October, that means that I am here since just one month! Why am I here? Easy, I wanted to study german. I have been studying german for the last two years (not continued) in Mallorca but I deeply think that the best way to learn a language is a full immersion. So, after finishing my master degree I found myself in the perfect time to spend some months in Germany, and here I am.
I am here in Munich only for one reason: my host family is here. Yes, I am an AuPair. For those who does not know what an Aupair is, let me explain it to you. Aupair is a “programm” where you move to another country with a local family and, in exchange of babysitting (and some other tasks), you live with them.
When I was looking for a host family, I knew I wanted a family in or next to a big city, because my priority was to join an Academy and small towns usually do not offer german courses.
So, now my plan is to be here for 6 months in total and attending every month an intensive course and come back home with a fluent german.
See you in the next post 😊
