I am Lucas Beraldo, I am 17 years old and I came from Brazil and I am going to stay one year in Germany. I lived in a medium-sized city (180.000 inhabitants) in the west of São Paulo State (about 450 km from São Paulo city).

There are many diferences between my life here and back in Brazil, the weather for example here is colder while in Brazil is hot the whole year. In addition the school system is very different, in Brazil I had all the classes in the same room with the same students and I needed to study more and here I have more freedom in the school to choose the subjects and to study with different people.

All in all, my life here is very different from my life in Brazil, but I am looking forward for my experience in Germany to improve my german, meet new people, travel and learn new things.
