The school system in Germany

I was in my last school two and a half years. There I did my general qualification for university entrance at the beginning of this year. In Germany we have 16 federal states and every state can change the school system a little. This is why we don’t have a uniform school system in the whole country. This is difficult because the levels in the different states can be different. In my federal state the students are studying for four years in primary school, six years in junior high school and two and a half years or three years in high school. In high school I have the choice of which school subjects I want to take. I have to […]

Musical education

I studied in Puolalanmäki Upper Secondary School for three years and graduated in 2018. It’s one of the Upper secondary schools in Turku, which is a city on the southwest coast of Finland. The main reason why I wanted to apply to Puolalanmäki was that the school offers a great music oriented programme. The programme also ended up being the reason why I was motivated to go to school every day. Alongside normal subjects I had a lot of music courses, for example music history, theory, singing lessons and classes on how to express yourself with music and how to get better in performing songs. I was one of the singers in our school’s choir, which consisted of more than […]

My old school: HLW Rankweil

The “HLW Rankweil”, as it’s called, is located in Rankweil, Austria and was founded in 1977. The school I’m writing about is my old high school. At the moment there are around 65 teachers and 480 students, most of them being girls. It takes five years to finish and graduate from this school. This school is not like a normal high school, the correct translation of the name is: school and college of management and services industries. This means that in addition to general education it provides a technical and vocational training in subject-related theoretical and business-oriented subjects. The essential objectives are: personal growth and development, creativity, teamwork, communicative skills in several languages and practical experience. After this school you […]

My University

I studied at the University of Reading for three years. My degree was in History and Politics. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Reading is in Berkshire which is about a thirty minute train ride from London Paddington. The University itself has some significant history attached to it. It was formerly part of Oxford University’s Christ Church College but was granted independence to produce its own degrees by a Royal Charter from King George V. It was also the first university to appoint a woman as a chair at an English University level-institution in 1912. The University also boasts having the renowned Twentieth Century composer Gustav Holst as a Professor of music.  Reading University can also proclaim one of the […]

A composer from Liechtenstein

A man who showed exceptional musical talent at an early age. No one knows Liechtenstein and if you ask a person who grew up here about famous people from this country, finding an answer will be very difficult. It is not easy to think of a musician from Liechtenstein. Even the results shown on Google are frustrating. Not only are there just a few results but there was only one name I have heard before: Josef Rheinberger. Now, we have learned that famous people from Liechtenstein are as hard to find as cheese from Madeira, we can look at why I actually know this person. He was born in Liechtenstein, to be exact in Vaduz on the 17th of March […]

The sound of home

Two places connected to the sea. The water splashes against the rocks. The wind whistles over the boats. Both Egmond and Madeira, two places connected to the sea. I come from a little village in the Netherlands named Egmond aan den Hoef, yes that complicated, just try to say that name out loud. Same as Madeira the sea is one of the most important features of this place. The sand turned into rocks, the dunes into mountains. There is no other place like home, but along the way of life, the feeling of that word changes. For me home is not my home village but is the people and culture, for me most of all it’s the arts and freedom. […]

Funchal vs. Vaduz

My hometown Vaduz is really different from Funchal. I live in the capital city of Liechtenstein, a town called Vaduz. Liechtenstein itself is smaller than Madeira and Vaduz is also a lot smaller than Funchal. Vaduz has about 5,500 inhabitants and Funchal has got about 110,000. Similarities are hard to find, because the size of the towns are very different, also because of the climate. Funchal is located near the ocean with a lot of humidity and it’s always very warm. Vaduz is a lot colder and it also rains a lot there and it’s not humid at all. But there are also similarities like the tourism and the university. A big part of Vaduz is the tourism. There are […]

Biodiversidade há 800 mil anos

Ilhas portuguesas incluídas na análise que considera que não chega olhar para os últimos 20 mil anos e que é preciso recuar até aos 800 mil. Um estudo que envolveu mais de 50 ilhas vulcânicas, incluindo os Açores e a Madeira, conclui que a biodiversidade só pode ser compreendida se se para a variação do nível do mar dos últimos 800 mil anos. Publicado na revista Global Ecology and Biogeography, o trabalho “contradiz a maioria dos estudos na área, que consideram apenas níveis do mar extremos registados num passado recente, há cerca de 20 mil anos”, explica o comunicado do Centro de Ecologia, Evolução e Alterações Ambientais. A flutuação do nível do mar tem-se alterado ao longo de milhares de […]

EU in the Atlantic Ocean?

People on this Island keep things way more ‘chilled’ than we do. This following article will be about some of the major similarities Madeira has in common with the Mainland of the European Union, but also some of the most interesting differences for me, compared to my hometown in Austria. Starting with some of the things which appear very different in Austria. First off, the mentality the people have on this island is about 180 degrees turned from the one the people in my area have. There is a famous saying, ‘Schaffa, schaffa, Hüsle bua!’ which means translated into English ‘Work and do not stop working until you can build a house and get a family’. In these past two […]
