Hey folks,
I'm a young woman originally from Austria who is just about to start her new life in Italy. Last year I was an AuPair in Switzerland so I had to travel back and forth between Austria, Switzerland and Italy (my boyfriend lives there). Next week my AuPair time is finally over and I will be able to move to Italy where I'll also start university. :D

Do you have any advice in how I can overcome my fear of speaking? I understand basically everything in Italian but I have real problems when I should come into action myself...
Of course every kind of tips are always very welcome

I also set up a blog to share my experiences. If you want join me on my way overcoming cultural differences and language problems, read funny episodes out of my life and make it though adventures with me on:

hi!) can you please share your emotions about working experience as AuPair?)

About overcoming your fear, if you understand basically everything in Italian, I'm sure, that you know the language very good. Just fell more confident, try to start by speaking with people who are your friends, I trully believe that they will support you. Good luck with it 😊
