My experience in Hamburg by Eleonora

Hinterlasse einen Kommentar Standard

Hello to all guys,

My name is Eleonora and I am here to tell you about my experience.

Thanks to a project called Erasmus+, I and 9 others guys had a chance to embark on a trip to a foreign country, our destination was Hamburg, Germany.

At the beginning I was really excited to come to Germany to work and be part of this project, now I’m even happier to be here.

This project lasts 3 weeks and I’m sad to have to go back home because I’m fine, I met some nice people and I like the place and the people I work with.


Also my group of friends and very nice, we are very sunny, fun people and together we are very good.

I’m only here for a week, so I can say that this will be an experience they never forget in life.

This experience has allowed me to improve my language skills, to know other people, other cultures, and to understand the lifestyle of people living in other countries.

Travelling opens your mind, and I think this trip was this for me, a way to open my mind.

Living in a big city and in another country allows you to improve your personality, mature and become more responsible person, especially because you stay three weeks away from your own country and your family grows and grows bigger.



I thank all those who have contributed to the organization and implementation of this project and the only advice I give you is to make absolutely this experience because it is really beautiful.

Kaufmann für Spedition und Logistikdienstleistung in Mailand vom Andrés Parra

Hinterlasse einen Kommentar Standard

Hallo liebe Leute,

Ich heiße Andrés und ich komme aus Barcelona aber zurzeit mache ich meine Ausbildung zum Kaufmann für Spedition und Logistikdienstleistung bei DHL in Hamburg.

Im August hatte ich die super Möglichkeit, ein Auslandspraktikum bei DHL in Mailand mit dem Erasmus+ Program zu machen.

Viele Sachen verbinden mich mit Italien: ein Land wo ich wie zu Hause mich fühle aber mein Ziel damit war mein Italienisch zu verbessern um einen Sprachzertifikat zu schaffen und ich muss sagen, dass trotz der kurzen Zeit, habe ich es sehr gut geschafft.

Danke an die Superkollegen die ab 1. Tag mich in das Team integriert haben.


Die Abteilung, wo ich tätig war, war die I-Point. Das ist die Kernabteilung der DHL in Italien, da die Porzesse von Import und Export da gemacht werden. Auch die Nahverkehr- und die Basenetworkskoordinierung werden hier auch durchgeführt. Meine Aufgabe waren da grundsätzlich die Buchung bei den Kunden und Fahrerunternehmer für das spätere Sammeln der Ware. War beides; entspannend aber auch stressig aber überhaupt sehr bereichernd.


Mein Auslandspraktikum in Italien

Hey guys,

Ciao ragazzi,

Hallo liebe Leute!

Mein Name ist Kevin aus Hamburg. Ich hatte in diesem Frühsommer die einzigartige Möglichkeit, mit Hilfe von Arbeit und Leben Hamburg ein Auslandspraktikum in meinem Traumland Italien zu absolvieren.

Ich sage euch, das war der Oberhammer und kein Vergleich zur Arbeitswelt in Deutschland! Ganz ehrlich, die Leute dort sind soooo herzlich und hilfsbereit und obwohl ich schon mega Angst hatte und auch super nervös war wegen der italienischen Sprache und meinem – ich sage mal leicht untertrieben – schlechten Englisch, denn ich dachte: Oh oh, wie soll ich kommunizieren???

Diese Angst verflog ganz schnell, denn Ich lernte schnell ein paar Brocken Italienisch und auch mein Englisch verbesserte sich stetig.

Über das Essen und Wetter brauch ich glaub ich nicht viel sagen 😊.


An den Wochenenden hatte ich die Möglichkeit, viele interessante Orte kennenzulernen wie Venedig oder meine Lieblingsstadt Napoli, alles wirklich zu empfehlen. Auch Mailand ist nicht sehr weit von meiner 2. Heimat Forlì weg.

Also Leute, worauf wartet Ihr?! Weg vom verregneten London. Ab ins Abenteuer im sonnigen Italien! Ihr werdet es nicht bereuen.

Beste Grüße

Euer Kevin

I’m Sabrina, a student of the 4th year at the school of graphic arts in Trento.

Trento is a little and amazing city in the in North-East of Italy and it is surrounded by mountains. Here in Trento it is very cold in winter and it often snows, indeed, the snow, in Trentino Alto Adige, it is the main tourist attraction.

My school proposed me to do an internship experience for one month in Hamburg, and I took the opportunity immediately, I said right away YES!

The reason why I said yes and I wanted to go to Germany was not just one. I want to improve my English level in using it every day: at school, at work and with people. I’m also curios to know German lifestyle: from the typical food to German’s daily routine and, in particular, I’d like to know their point of view about job and teamworks. Another reason is: I have never been abroad, I have never traveled alone and I have never did this type of experience.

I left from Trento on the evening of April 23, 2017 at 6.00 p.m. and I came to Hamburg at 9.00 a.m. I’m staying in a hostel, about 20 minutes from the centre. It is very convenient to be so close to the city.

Here in Hamburg I’m do internship about to my kind of study: graphic arts; and sometimes we organize trips in Hamburg, for example: visit the harbour, the Elbtunnel, St. Pauli, Neustadt, lake, the churches, Biergarten, Dietmar – Koel str. And Landungsbrucken.Sabrina 1

This experience was organzed for to create new opportunities by Arbeit und Leben, an educational institution that encouraging people to expand our knowledge.

I think that it is a great and beautiful opportunity.

My experience will and of May 22 and I feel lucky to have partecipate in this internship experience, indeed I thank those who gave me this chance. Moreover I’m sure this travel will help me in the future when I will write my Curriculum Vitae or will search my first job.

Experience report, April 2017

The province of Trento  colaborates with Arbeit und Leben Hamburg e.V. for this project called S.W.O.R.D that means “School and Work Related Dual Learning”. The project is an abroad experience and his main purpose is to show the students how the internships work abroad (

In addition to practical learning we also had the possibility to attend German language lessons as a preparation for the internship. We also made some guided tours to the main Hamburg monuments and attrKircheactions.



Some of these interesting monuments and places that we saw were:

The Ottenser Hauptstrasse street that you can find near the Altona train station. There are a lot of shops and attractions, one of them is the Mercado shopping center, where there is a plaque with the names of the people that are buried underneath.At the bottom of the street there is a park called Kemal-altum square, that is a beautiful park where you can play basketball or simply enjoy the sunlight. At the entrance of this plaza you can find a blue excavator called “Meck&hambrock”. The excavator is a prove that there were once heavy built industrial machines

Then on the friendensalle street we visited the media center “Zeise halls”. In there there is a nice cinema called “Zeise Kinos” where you can watch movies in German as well in German. You can also find a restaurant there and some souvenir shops.  Mercado Einkaufszentrum_1

Another spot that I found fantastic is „The Fabrik”. It is placed just around the corner of the Zeise halls. On the top of the building there is a big crane so you can`t miss it. Now they make cultural events inside but it was a former machine factory before. Because of that the internal architecture is impressive.

To conclude we had a walk along shore of the river Elbe. There are many boats and a huge ship. The view is awesome, the seagulls fly above you and the air fells very fresh. That was a good place to relax and have breakfast.

„Forlì is an amazing city in the heart of Italy. So food and coffee are fantastic and you are very close to Rimini, Florence and Bologna, you just need to take a train to feel immerse in culture“

„During my internship, I met lots of nice people, both Italians and from all over Europe. Locals have been very welcoming with us and I went out with some of my colleagues. Instead, at the Aperitandem I had the chance to chat with international people living in Forlì for a while, like me. It  was very funny!“

„I really enjoyed my internship period in Italy, Forlì is a beautiful city and the Uniser staff very helpful. They helped all my group with every problem we had and they were always available for help and suggestions“

Written by the students and young people who came to UNISER in Forlì during Erasmus+ mobility or just vocational mobility experience.
