A Dream Come True!
Hi! My name is Sophie, IÂ´m 20 years old and I come from Sweden. Here I am, second from right, along with some of my new friends.
I have during the last three months been studying German on the little island in the south of Germany, called Lindau. I decided to take a year of from my school in Sweden because I wanted to do something else, something fun, interesting but also something that would be educational.
