On a personal note ...

What do you like most about your job?

Working with young adults, and working with texts and language.

 

What's the number one piece of advice you wish you had been given as a student?

Take notes on everything you read and keep them.

 

Which English word/phrase/grammar point do you especially like to teach to your students?

Obama never said "Yes, we have the possibility!" I can also become very enthusiastic about the proper use of semi-colons.

 

What’s your favo(u)rite line from a song or your favo(u)rite saying?

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough. -- Albert Einstein

 

When you are not at the department, where do you like to hang out in Vienna?

I like to take long walks in the woods near the Marchfeldkanal.

 

What's the scariest thing you've ever done in your life?

Coming to Vienna on my own at the age of 20 to study Germanistik -- with only a very basic knowledge of German.
