Detailed description of the registration process at the host organization
I filled my application form to give some information about me, after this I did the Learning Agreement, and it was a little bit difficult choose the course online. When I arrived in Graz, the first day I went to the international office and I started to visit the university and signed the documents. When it came time to create the calendar of the lessons unfortunately I cannot do some courses, but my tutor, helped me to find new courses and change the Learning Agreement.

Review of your stay abroad in academic terms
I have learned new pedagogic knowledge to teach in the primary school, especially make into practice the theoretical notions. This experience has opened my mind and my points of view, to give me a lot of new ideas to teach in the future! I improved my English, but I have many problems with German (Life is too short to learn German!), because I never study before this period!

Review of the stay abroad in cultural terms
During my Erasmus period, I meet a lot of new people that came from all over the word, and I shared with them many feelings (happiness, fear, etc.). The university and especially our buddies helped has every time and prepared a lot of activities like cinema, welcome day, bake cookies for Christmas, international dinner and excursions.
In the city there are a lot of Erasmus students, and this is the ideal to compare many things, share parties and dinner, to become friends forever! Also I travel a lot like in Vienna, Munich, Budapest, Salzburg, Innsbruck, Linz, and also many city.
Last but not least, the Austrian people are very friendly and polite, anytime they are ready to help you.
