Some news about me

In July I was granted a 10-month participation in a social EVS project in Vienna. Quotation: The European Voluntary Service (EVS) is part of the EU-Programme Erasmus+: Youth in Action. It provides you the opportunity to go abroad from 2 to 12 months (in special cases from 2 weeks to 2 months) and contribute to a non-profit project. Participation in the EVS is free of charge for you. Accommodation, food, pocket money, insurance and a language course are organized and financed. Outward- and return journey will be covered by a flat rate, occasionally this can result in a deductible. So i prepared the huge number of documents for VISA to the end of August and on the 1st of September I arrived to Vienna. I have never been in Austria before. My project is providing an assist at the kindergarten. I will post some of my workdays and impressions.

Herzlichen Gl├╝ckwunsch! I'm sure it will be an interesting experience. So you'll learn German with an Austrian accent. :-)

@TypicalRussian Better not! Don't try to imitate the Austrian accent consciously too much. You may not be understood outside Austria then. I have problems with the Austrian and especially Swiss German accents. How much money will you earn? Vienna is more expensive than a small town, but, of course, much more interesting. There is no Kindergarten in the afternoon, is there? Are you going to look for a second job? Would you be allowed to work in a second job?

@MALUSE Thanks for the information. I have known so far that 5 oclock tea in Austrian is "Jausen" if i am not mistaken. The only money i can have is pocket money 115 Euro a month. But i don't pay for the accomodation, transportation in Vienna, 2 meals a day provided by a kindergarten. It was one of visa and project stipulation - not to work officially or study. Just participate in a project. We all have to work for 6 hours 5 days a week. And have a german language course. Nothing more except weekends that you have free time for entertaining yourself. There are 12 volunteers from different countries in these series of projects. My room mate is from Canarian Islands, sociologist Other volunteers on my floor are from Denmark, Poland and Spain. There is one volunteer from WAles. he lives in another Wohngemeinschaft. He will work with handicapped people.

Congratulations How are you finding the experience so far? How are you liking Austria & the people there? How did you arrange your accommodation, etc back in Russia, so that it's still there for you upon your return?
