SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: I am returning to my work for Chatterbug from the end of April till the forseeable future and I cannot wait to get back to this lovely online community of teachers and learners ! I aim to get my schedule updates at least a couple of weeks in advance, but watch this space for any last-minute additions !
My name is Jenny and I am originally from Frankfurt, Germany.
I left Germany when I was 19 to live and study in Scotland, and apart from some travelling stints around the world, I’ve always returned to my new home in “sunny” Dundee (apparently it is the sunniest city in Scotland, but I have yet to find out why ).
My day job is lecturing German and French at a nearby university, and I also help out in the languages department at a nearby private school, but I love meeting international students through platforms like Chatterbug, as it provides a completely new community and having students from around the world is something else!
In my free time, I enjoy travelling/exploring new places (duh!), yoga, walking (my dog), eating and I love a good TV show.
My favourite quote is the cheesy “Everything happens for a reason”, because my philosophy is: Life is short. Don’t waste your time with regrets, and instead re-adjust, appreciate those learning opportunities and try something different next time!
I can’t wait to meet all of you and wish you a splendid (hopefully-sunny-if-you-are-not-in-Dundee) day!
