Hello and welcome to show 218 of our podcast “absolutely intercultural” which is the third of a series of “Erasmus” podcasts to celebrate and highlight the 30th anniversary of the most successful of all student exchange programs. In this episode our students are going to share their own experiences and stories with you. You will hear some useful advice for your exchange semester. How should you be prepared before going abroad? How to make your integration easier? Also how Erasmus effects non-exchange students, and how they profit in their home country. And we will listen to a beautiful story about how an exchange semester resulted in a lovely Erasmus couple.
Listen to our Erasmus couple – Cedric Lensing from Germany and Amama Farooq from Pakistan – will share some positive experiences about how they met during their Erasmus semester in Izmir, Turkey, and how their relationship went on.
Our four Exchange students Beka and Nino from Georgia, Omar from Spain and Ibrahim from Jordan will give you some useful advice that will help you with your preparation for our stay abroad. For example you should arrive in the new country with enough money in your pocket.
RheinAhrCampus student Robert from Germany will share his intercultural experiences with his buddy from India. First he was careful and tried out how he could socialize with the Indian but in the end they just turned into good friends.
