August 3rd, 2013 02:17 PMKuraHappy Bday!!!!
March 12th, 2013 11:12 PMZorogamiYou should definitely visit Cologne someday, its a really nice city and there is a lot to see and do
Haha what a coincidence! Yeah we always have some awesome food on the table, that's a blessing :3
I've been to some places: I've already told you a spent a year in the US, i've been to many european countries, like England, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Poland, Greece...me and my family like to travel a lot, and we spent every summer in Spain since my Grandma lives there :3
How about you, do you travel a lot?
March 12th, 2013 04:11 PMKuraOh I haven't heard of Cologne! :3 And My parents are Italian too! But that must be a good mix in you since.. good food and good drink right? Hahaha~
And certainly is an advantage! Have you been to travel anywhere? :3
March 11th, 2013 04:26 PMZorogamiThat's so cool i always wanted to visit Canada. It's supposed to be really nice and pretty there and (this might just be a stereotype) people are supposed to be extremely nice. That's the biggest advantage about Europe, you can easily visit so many different countries!
I Live in Cologne, you might have heard of it, it's a pretty big city. I've lived here all my life, but I'm actually half-spanish and half-italian thanks to my parents
March 11th, 2013 04:18 PMKuraI went to school (both highschool and uni) in Toronto, Canada :3 Got a job in the UK and moved a bit after I graduated. I like being in the UK! I can travel to other European countries so easily :3
Where in Germany are you from :3?
March 11th, 2013 04:10 PMZorogamiAh okay I'm glad (: so where did you go to highschool and college/uni?
March 11th, 2013 04:08 PMKuraIt's not confusing at all! Yeah we have apprenticeships and internships too, but you have to pass highschool for them most of the time (up to year 12) that is interesting though! :3
March 11th, 2013 03:28 PMZorogamiDon't worry about it, just teasing you
Well, highschool in Germany used to go up to year 13, now they changed it to 12. You can actually quit school after finishing 10th grade and/or turning 16, after that you can start something like an apprenticeship. This means you apply directly to a concern or a company, and they teach you a job, which is pretty much hands-on and takes places both at the concern and at a special school. I guess this is something other countries don't exploit as much, in germany it's a pretty common thing to do.
If you do finish highschool though, you usually go to University, where you can study all the other stuff.
I'm sorry if i'm confusing you with this
March 11th, 2013 03:19 PMKuraSorry! Was a bit busy today :3
Yeah college in Canada is completely different than College in the UK. Canadian highschool goes up to year 12. I think UK goes up to year 10 and then you take an optional 2 years of college, then uni. In Canada, college is basically on par with Uni, only college is for things more hands-on (example, if you want to be an artist, you go to college, but if you want to be an art historian, you go to Uni.)
:3 Which one is it more like in Germany?
March 11th, 2013 03:13 PMZorogamiHeeey there! i thought you would never get back to me
I'm doing general courses for now, later on you get to pick a specialty...but i really don't know yet what i want to do, lucky enough i still have plenty of time to decide :3 Yeah I'm from germany, our school system is pretty "unique" i guess, but i think you could compare it to Canada or the UK, definitely not the US. I spent a year there as an exchange student, it's a completely different thing. This only counts for High-School though, once you enter college, it's pretty much the same as in any other european country
