My First Swimming Experience

The storyteller:
Noor is coming from Iraq and now living for 10 years in Austria.

Summary:
At the age of 5 many years ago, I was excited to learn how to swim. On this sunny Friday afternoon, my family and I set off for the swimming pool close to the house. My mum had earlier registered me for the swimming course and I had the most beautiful swim suit on. At the pool I felt special and couldn’t wait to get inside. After a small pep talk from my brother we entered the water and guess what happened? The rest is history…

The Arrogant Princess

The storyteller:
Prudence originates from Nigeria and has lived for five years in Austria.

Summary:
In a Kingdom somewhere in the western part of Africa lived a king who planned to marry out his daughter to any man of her choice. The arrogant princess was too proud and saw nothing good in all her suitors until she learnt her lesson the hard way.

Alleine lernen

The interviewee:
A young woman from Sudan who is living for two years in Germany.

Summary:
The interview was part of a radio show workshop in Göttingen. The young woman reports how she has managed to learn German by her own in 7 months, because she couldn’t attend a German language course. A great story about what you can reach if you really want to.
