Farewell to our American Asisstant.
Our 23-year-old American teaching assistant Anthony David Salazar from Boston, the capital of Massachusetts in the north-east of the USA, tried to show our students that learning English can also be fun. He stayed in our school from October 2016 until the end of May 2017. Having studied in Vienna, one of his most favourite cities, and having lived in Germany, Anthony eagerly wished to come back to the German speaking world. This year was Anthony’s second academic year in Austria and he would like to come to Austria more often in the future. He is looking forward to finishing his university education next year.
Philipp Zeiml and Robert Wagner from the PR-Group 2017 invited Anthony for an Interview.
Philipp: What was your most favourite place to go to in Austria?
Anthony: This was definitely the Tyrol because of the beautiful landscape and because I could act out one of my hobbies which is hiking.
Robert: What is your most favourite sport?
Anthony: I think that every sport including a ball is extremely boring but I really love outdoor sports like swimming, hiking, running or even weight lifting.
Philipp: What did you do in your free time?
Anthony: Even in my free time I’m very academic minded. I study and read a lot mostly because of my incredibly high interest in foreign languages which is why I’m in Europe every year.
Robert: Do you travel a lot as a “tourist”?
Anthony: Yes I’ve been in over 20 European countries as a tourist and in two countries as an English assistant and even a teacher.
Philipp: What was the best thing to do?
Anthony: One of the best things in my opinion was going to very small places where no one spoke English to explore all the new languages. After a good hike, however, the best thing to do is to have a good Weizenbier.
Philipp and Robert: Thank you very much for your efforts here in our school and all the best for you in the future.
