Lier, 27th July 2019. For the first time one of our scholarship holders had chosen Norway as the country for a work placement abroad. In the south Norwegian town Lier Melanie found a fascinating work placement in the restaurant chain Max Burger, where she learned a lot about the Norwegian environment and the local working culture.  Apart from preparing the dishes her duties also included cleaning the kitchen, washing the work clothes as well as serving the customers. Important aspects like increasing self-confidence, finding new friends and expanding her knowledge of English belong to the seven advantages of the work placement, which she lists at the end of her report.
