Good evening dear readers, fellow year abroaders and those who have curiously stumbled upon my travelers tales.
Well January certainly flew by! Quite like the rest of the time has since being here! Yet it was a pretty hectic month; settling back into Austrian life and oh just the small matter of 5 exams within the space of about a week. Which let’s be honest didn’t really go as planned. One exam I turned up for expecting a written exam and then found out it was a speaking exam, one I turned up for a day late, and one I’m not entirely sure I knew the right answer for any question at all. The conclusion I have come to is that exams and I are often not a particularly great mix, yet I gave it my best shot! Which I’ve learnt is just about all you can do as a bemused Erasmus student!
Though I guess it wasn’t all so tragic; my B2.2 German course that I took in the semester was finished off with a written and oral exam, and in the end I passed, so I will be continuing to a C1 intensive course for the rest of this month..wish me luck! (So much for a pre-summer semester break!).
