Steffen, Youth Hostel & Nationwide Workplace Volunteer
I am Steffen, i will be 21 yrs old and come from Bochum, a city when you look at the west of Germany. I have currently studied two semesters of constructive engineering right after school but realised that this isn't what I want to do in the foreseeable future.
The SYHA has given me personally the chance to invest a volunteering 12 months in Scotland, which includes employed in different hostels; Glen Nevis, Aberdeen, Rowardennan and Edinburgh Metro as well as in the National-Office in Stirling. It has aided us to select an individual course with regards to learning or starting an education also to use this as to be able to think about my passions and wishes for future years.
At the beginning I'd some problems knowing the Scottish dialect because there are countless different accents and you also cannot compare it on English we have taught in school in Germany, but I have now currently got regularly it and extended my vocabulary with my peers.
Back at my times off we you will need to travel around in so far as I can, which needs much of personal effort, and up to now We have seen lots of different places like Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, and I did a cycling travel on Skye and Raasay, I would that recommend to any or all. By surviving in the hostel like many visitors We have satisfied people from various countries all around the globe which is quite interesting and furthers my chance to prove my English abilities.
If I could summarize my very first 90 days inside nation I Would Personally state I have discovered a great deal about myself, currently improved my English, found good work colleagues, recognized the beauty of this nation having its contrasts of big places and unblemished nature and recommend volunteering using the SYHA.”
