Hi, my name is David Berger and I’m 18 years old. I live with my parents in a town called Dornbirn. I have an older brother and sister, but they are both studying in bigger cities. At the moment I’m a student at the upper-level secondary vocational college in Bregenz. After my graduation I want to travel in different countries and after that I’m looking forward to studying. In my free time I do sports and meet friends. I’m very glad to have this opportunity to get to know the Irish culture, people and to improve my English skills.

Hello, my name is Marco Boch and I’m 18 years old. I am from Austria and I live with my mother and my sister in a small village in Vorarlberg called Altach. I attend the HAK Bregenz, an upper-level secondary vocational college with a special focus on economics. Currently, I am not sure what I want to do after my graduation in 2017 but I will probably take a gap year. Travelling the world would be the dream of my life as I want to see as many different countries as possible. All the energy and different lifestyles are such an inspiration for me. Due to that I would love to tick off the next point on my wish list of travel destinations: Ireland. I see this internship as an opportunity to get work experience in a foreign country, to get to know a new culture and last but not least, to improve my English skills by communicating with native speakers.
