Living Abroad

Lisa - interviewed by Yaman (in English, 8:12 min)

  • “It was the first time I lived abroad, so I didn’t really know how to deal with a cultural shock”
  • “I think what I like the most about living abroad in general was getting to know new people and new cultures”

Lisa from Germany shares a part of her living abroad experience. She was in Argentina doing a double degree year and before that she lived in the USA for a few years. Lisa talked about how a person improves and collects more life experience by living in cultures and environments that are different than their own, but it can also be challenging with cultural differences and language barriers.
