Ist der Text grammatisch richtig? Könnt ihr mir helfen, englisch ist nicht meine Stärke!
Danke im Voraus! ( Ich muss einen Brief an meinen zukünftigen Austauschschüler schicken und ihm informieren über die Sitten, Gesetze etc. in Österreich)
I was totally over the moon when I got your letter! Thanks for writing, I hope you are well.
What a marvellous idea to spend a year in Vienna. That’s a really, really wise decision, which you won’t regret as Vienna is an exciting multicultural city. Austrians are generally conservative people, as a matter of fact they are prudent and moderate in their behaviour. Well, I’m going to give you some hints about how to behave, what to expect and so on- so here goes.
As for behaviour, I suggest greeting almost everybody with a handshake, where you ought to look into people´s eyes while greeting them. Greeting is very important in Austria.
Another good piece of advice would be if you are invited to an Austrian's house arrive on time. Punctuality is a sign of respect. In some houses you may be asked to remove your shoes, although the custom is not as prevalent as it once was. I can highly recommend that you shouldn’t do not begin eating until the hostess says 'mahlzeit' or 'Guten Appetit'. Furthermore, I can advise you to finish everything on your plate.
As I said before, Vienna is a really incredible city, offering you an absolutely wide range of leisure-time activities. There are amazing cafes, clubs and pubs where you can meet with your friends. But be careful! Drinking under 16 years is forbidden in Austria.
I am sure you will love it! All in all I hope I have been able to help you.
Can’t wait to hear from you soon. Take care and write back soon.
