Interview II
Interview III

Get to know the Team. The first one to the microphone is Rich. He´s 24 and from Northampton. He loves Germany, especially after his terrifying experiences in China - those chopsticks can be painful! Anyway to the meat: Angelika interviews Rich.

    1.Why did you decide to come to Germany?

    I wanted to improve my German, if you’ve heard me speak then you’ll know what I mean. The good weather was another reason but unfortunately nobody told me that I was going to the rainiest part of the country.

    2.What are your plans for the future?

    Eventually I’d like to return to England, probably to teach English literature in schools, but in the meantime I’m happy to stay in Germany for a while.

    3.What has been the most embarrassing moment of your life?

    Funny you should mention that as it happened just last Saturday. Thanks to my dear colleague Nathan I ended up having to dance in front of two hundred people I’d never met before, I’m sure he’d be happy to explain if you wanted any more details!

    4.Do you have a girlfriend?

    No, I don’t. Next question please.

    5.What do you like best about your job?

    The opportunity to travel and meet people.

    6.Have you made new friends here in Germany?

    Yes, it was a nice surprise to find how easy it is to do here.

    7.How would you describe yourself?

    That ‘s an impossible question to answer. As long as my mother loves me I’ll be happy.

    8.Can you cook?

    Yes. My speciality? Do salad dressings count?

    9.Do you go out a lot and where do you go?

    Yes, Kult in Solingen is a favourite haunt. My flatmate David and I also go out to eat and make the occasional trip to Köln and Düsseldorf. The Altstadt in Düsseldorf is great and it’s also possible to watch English language films in their original version in the city.

    10.Is there anything you don’t like about the Germans?

    The football team. And I don’t like how they always seem to be better-dressed than me.
