Coordination Welcome Week 2019
My name is Kristina and at PIASTA I coordinate the Team Experiencing Languages. Born and raised in Russia, I did my first degree (German as a foreign language) between Moscow and Berlin and moved to Hamburg in 2013. After completing my Master's degree in German Studies at the University of Hamburg, I worked as a DAAD teaching assistant in Brazil for two years. Since 2019, I am back in the most beautiful city in the world, doing my PhD in literary studies and I am a part of the awesome PIASTA team. As coordinator of the Language Cafés and LanguageTandem and as a multilingual person myself, I want to share my enthusiasm for new languages and cultures with other students. As a team, we would like to introduce alternative formats of language learning outside the classroom, where participants can have fun and improve their social and intercultural skills. I am looking forward to your messages in Russian, German, English, Portuguese or Polish.
