Since 2018 > I am a "University Teacher & Associate Tutor" in German, here at "University of Cardiff - Prifysgol Caerdydd" @ School of Modern Languages (MLANG).

I am a University degree holder of Philosophy (*Magistra de Philosophiae), German studies and Psychology.

  • In 2012 – 13 > I went to study as an "Exchange student" to Germany* Heidelberg for deepening my personal understanding of the importance of the subject “Philosophy”.
  • In 2014 – 15 > I worked as a “Foreign language assistant in German” within the U.K., *in Bristol in two Secondary Schools - *Bristol Grammar School* & "Red Maid's".
  • In 2016 > Graduation in my Masters (*Magistra de Philosophiae) > Title of thesis: "Das Böse als inhärenter Begriff des Guten bei Anselm von Canterbury und Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel & dessen literarische Verortung in Ödon von Horváths "Jugend ohne Gott“. @ Home University: *University of Vienna*.
  • In 2016 -17 > After my Master’s graduation in 2016, I have received the marvellous chance to become the “Austrian Lecturer” in Eastern Hungary,*Debrecen. There, I closely worked together with the “Austrian Cultural Forum in Budapest” and did teach for instance Hungarian University students as well as Secondary School Teachers. One of my main tasks there was, to offer these students and Secondary School teachers a wide range of *how to teach (Austrian) German language and culture* within current scientific methods and approaches in the fields of "intercultural communication".

“In between” all of that work experience I have also once gotten the chance to be part of “team of language acquisition” (of the “Austrian Integration Fund” in Vienna) where I did go into the development of “language teaching materials” as well as being (co)- responsible for the maintanance of the “largest German (speaking) Online - learning Website of Austria”. Further, my most recent work experience during summer 2018 was being part - *as a voluntary teacher* - of the project “STARTWien” for Refugees.
