Study Abroad Unit


Katharina GrunbergerName: Katharina
Erasmus year: 2015
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

Studying in Leicester was an absolutely rewarding experience for me. Besides improving my English skills, I have learned a lot about myself. I learned to be more confident, to be more outgoing and to try new things. What I enjoyed most about the lectures was the opportunity to study English with native speakers. I know that I have learned a lot from my colleagues and lecturers about the English language and English literature. As a future English teacher, I think it is essential to spend some time abroad. It is not enough to study books, you have to experience the country and language.
