We are continuing our teacher profile series. Today, we meet Dominik.
How long have you been teaching at ActiLingua?
What do you enjoy most about teaching?
It’s awesome to work with people from different countries and cultures. It’s great to see how they learn to engage with my language and culture and also how they present their culture and their country in a conversation.
Is there a story from your time as an ActiLingua teacher, which you can share?
There was a solar eclipse in 2015. I decided to take my group to the Heldenplatz after class, to watch the spectacle there. After some time, we saw our Federal President Heinz Fischer and asked him for a selfie. My students and I were very excited and happy. After all, you don’t take a selfie with a President every day!
What do you like to do most during your time off in Vienna?
After a long day, I love to walk through the streets of Vienna in the evening and enjoy the wonderful architecture. I also like to meet my friends and go to the theatre and the cinema.
Which bar could you recommend to our ActiLingua students?
What is your personal sightseeing tip for people visiting Vienna?
The Kahlenberg. It may take you a while to reach it by bus, but if you arrive on the top, you’ll be rewarded with an incredible view over Vienna.
