Hello lovely chatterbug community
My name is Jess (she/her) and I currently live in Switzerland.
Last year I started my 3 year bachelors degree programme in food sciences.
Before my studies, I did a vocational training as a pastry maker, later worked as a bike messenger and got my vocational baccalaureate.
After that I travelled multiple times to various places.
I am all about food and travelling!
One of my most recent and biggest adventures was to travel through the States and Kanada with my friend and our own camper-van for about 6 months.
I love to discover new places, meeting new people, tasting new and different kinds of foods and learning new languages.
My mother-tongue is German and I also grew up with Hungarian. My english Level is C1, my French is B2 and I know a little bit of Spanish from my travels to Colombia and some very few words in Japanese from my travels to Japan
What I think is, that when you want to master a new language, it’s all about communication and repetition. I have experienced that my English, French and Spanish had improved so much outside of the classroom when I was actually using everything I have learned on paper with people around me.
I’m very happy to here on chatterbug and help you on your path of improving your german. I know that, sometimes it can be challenging to get out there and talk to strangers. This is the perfect platform to feel comfortable and practice a new language. This is the way to go! You decided to get yourself out here and get going!
I cannot wait to meet you and talk to you
If you are curious about my hometown
I live in beautiful Basel. It’s in nortwest of switzerland and crosses borders with France and Germany. It’s a very open and multicultural city. Our river “der Rhein” flows right through the city and makes for a perfect space to meet people and to take a swim when it’s really hot during summer. We have a lot of museums, cultural events and there are no cars in the city which makes it perfect to discover Basel by foot or with a bike.
