It increased my cultural awareness and civic consciousness.
A story from Teresa Fernandes
Country of origin: Portugal
Country of destination: Austria
My name is Teresa Fernandes, I’m a project manager in a translation company.
I had my Erasmus experience in Vienna, Austria, in 2003/2004
In the second year of college I decided to do Erasmus to improve German language, and deepen my knowledge in a specific professional area that I wanted to explore, translation.
Also because I wanted to have new experiences and meet people from other countries and cultures.
I chose Vienna because of the city itself, culturally rich.
Once I finished Erasmus realized that my German was better. I’ve learned the Viennese and Italian, and improved my Spanish.
I met people from several countries, their cultures and traditions. I felt much richer.
