Miriam from Northern Germany

Hello and Moin Moin :slight_smile:

Thanks for having the chance to introduce myself. My name is Miriam and I live near the Danish border. I was born and raised in Cuxhaven a little town near the seaside.

Impressions from my region
But there are family connections to other German speaking regions, too. My mother comes from Baden-Wuerttemberg near Offenburg/Freiburg in Southern Germany

and my cousin lives in Switzerland. My father- and sister-in law live in Hessen near Frankfurt. It’s great to enjoy the different ‘cultures’ and the meals from the different regions.

At the age of about 12-19 I learned English, French and Latin at school and we had the chance to talk to French native speakers. That was a great experience and it boosted my interest in learning languages.
Due to my occupation (teacher) I’m always interested in improving and learning my learning and teaching skills. During Lockdown it became clear that working from home or online in general is a great chance for new opportunites in this transforming world. I’m deeply impressed by the Chatterbug website and services. So I’ll definitely sign up for language courses myself. I think it’s essential to be a student of a certain kind if you want to teach. I personally like to improve my language fluency and learn new words or remember some other words. That’s a perfect chance, here, isn’t it? :innocent: :hibiscus: I might start a A1 course in Spanish, too, because in our family we love to listen to Spanish summer songs. . . .

In my free time I love to spend time with our children, love horseback riding - especially going on hacks - taking care of a horse and dogs, cycling, travelling (also housesitting) and try gardening, but the garden is becoming a jungle . . . :deciduous_tree: :blossom:

So dear students and new colleagues, I’m looking forward to meeting you. Tell me about yourself and feel free to ask any questions. I’m feeling excited and pleased about having lessons and chats with you.

Thank you Amandine :hugs:
Maybe we’ll also meet in a French lesson one day. We might start at the beginning, again, because I haven’t had French for ages. :clipperton_island:

Avec plaisir ! :catbee: I took a long break from learning Spanish but it’s coming back quickly, so I’m sure it will be the same for your French! :muscle: :muscle:
