Austria — The school system
I hope that all of you are fine. My name is Christina and I live in Austria (I´m sorry for my bad english and please don’t be angry about my mistakes, it’s not that easy for me).
In my first blog entry I want you to explain some things about Austria.
Let’s start with the school system today. In Austria we have to go to school for 9 years, but if we want we can go for 12/13 years. Normally, we start in the age of 6 with the primary school. We have to go there vor 4 years and after that we can go in another school for 4 more years. After that 8 years we have some options. For example we can chose if we want to make the “matura" which needs 5 years to do or another 3-year technical school. We can also decide to go in a “Gymnasium" which is the same as a high school (in my mind). Although I have to say that there some differences too. For example, normally, we don’t have school clubs, ect. If we have finished our 9 years, we are allowed to work in a company which means that we can learn a profession and get a little bit money for working.
I hope that you enjoyed reading my blog entry. If you have further questions or some tips for improving my writing-style, I would be very thankful!
Thanks for reading and have a nice day!
