Sarah from South Africa
“I have grown both professionally and personally here.”
“Europeans have many misconceptions about South Africa. At the same time, though, I also had misconceptions about Europe and Switzerland. During my time in Berne I taught English at Köniz upper secondary school. Unlike in South Africa, people are more relaxed about discipline here. In a school environment which does not employ disciplinary measures such as confiscation or target setting, students have to motivate themselves. This really turned everything I knew as a teacher on its head.
I’ll never forget my experiences in Switzerland. I have grown both professionally and personally here.”
