My name is Kim, I’m 17 years old and I come from Germany.
Here in Ireland I live in Wicklow in a host-family and go to school at the Colaiste Chill Mhantain. The first month is now over and I still love it here! At the beginning the school was very difficult for me, but now I understand a lot more and feeling like a normal student.
At the weekend my family went with me on trips. We visited the Black Castle, the Lighthouse and we went to the cinema. My new family here are very friendly and lovely and sometimes we go for walks along the sea.
Now there are six persons in the house. A mother, a father, a sister, a brother and a Spanish brother. He’s staying here as long as me. Everyday I do something with my siblings. We play cards, go outside or meet friends and I walk everyday to school and back with my brothers.The teachers here are very helpful and after every lesson, they ask me if I understand everything.
In the end I still love it here!The food here is very tasty! But it was hard for me to drink water and not sparkling water but my family is so sweet and sometimes buy me sparkling water. But now it is okay. 🙂
Yours sincerely, Kim.
