Studying in Chile
During the first days at the university I noticed that Chilean Spanish is quite different from the Spanish we learn at the university in Germany. For example, there was a misunderstanding when I talked about my girlfriend (Spanish: "Novia"), because "Novia" means "fiancée" in Chile. Girlfriend, on the other hand, is called "Polola". Also Chileans speak very fast and swallow a lot of letters.
My two favorite classes during the semester were "Recycling & Upcycling" and Economics. What I liked most about "Recycling & Upcycling" was that in addition to the theory part, we also gave presentations in which we took on the role of a consulting company and created small business plans for different companies. The economics lectures consisted mainly of theoretical content. Since the topics were well taught by the professor, this course was also very interesting and helpful for my further studies.
