I am an ESN alumni, and spent many years mentoring exchange students in Austria, helping them to feel welcomed and integrated. I also experienced being an expatriate myself in the U.S. and France, and know the hardships as a non-native if it comes to not being able to understand the spoken language of the locals. You feel lost in translation, frustrated, and at times even excluded.
Since I am passionate about languages, and especially the dialect in Austria, I have initiated this project, and designed practical rules and exercises that help non-natives to get a better understanding in the Austrian dialect.
