I will be studying at Karlsruhe University of Education, Germany. I will be the exchange student there, I will stay there 5 months, it starts from 1st March, 2019 to 31st August, 2019, I am supported by Mobility Program between Savannakhet University(SKU) and Karlsruhe University of Education and under scholarship of Erasmus Plus, I am very happy to be a part of this project which coordinates by professor Doctor Isabel Martin.
David Schrep is our tandem teacher in SKU. So I know all of them, they are very great relationship with our colleagues.
I have never been to Europe previously, Now I cannot wait to get to Germany to meet the Buddies, lecturers, new friends and new experience.
In my leisure time, I enjoy watching sports and news on TV. Going for walks, travelling around city, playing rattan ball, volley ball, football and Petanque. I also like cooking Lao food as fish Laab, beef Laab and Chicken Laab.
I will be a part of your community to learn as much as possible about the German culture and language. I very much excited to meet my PH buddy Miss Eloise. I am really sure this project will be an improving the experiences and it will also help me growing as lecturer for the national human resources in university and future.
