Today I have to write about one country that I want to visit, work or study. I think that this assignment is the most interesting work that I have to do to an English course, because learning other lengueges open the world to people and open de posibilities to think differently and this assignmente motivate you to know other places and other people, and that is very inspiring.
If I have the posibility to go to one place. I would go to Germany.
Always Germany has impress me for their culture. At first you can see Germany as a secund candle of West Thought (the first is greece), the german philosophy is historically significant to the world with thinkers like Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Nietzsche and Shopenhauer. The firsts precusors of Sociology are from Germany like Karl Marx and Max Weber. As well later we can see the important critical theory with thinkers like Adorno, Horkheimer, and (one of my favoirte autors) Jürgen Habermas. Well, with all this philosophy you can undestand why some people say that Germany is the land of the Poet and Thinker (Das land der Dicher und Denker).
I like also Germny because is a very develop and confortable country. It has a very impresive, dense and modern train transport network. You can go to everywhere in that country just in time. Even you can planificate your travels months before. And the train system is very well conected with urban transport system, with buses, metro and tram (tram is like Valparaiso's trolebuses, but much more modern).
I would like to live in Berlin because is very exciting, cosmopolitan, cultural, and develop City. Throughout its street a lot of history has happened. Since the begin of Prussian Kingdom, the first and secund war world, until the fall of Berlin Wall (and the fall of socialism goverment system). You can see all this history in one place, and you could be moved by the things that nazi regimen did to the jews, with a lot of memory museum, where you will be terrefied about control and killing systems of the nazis.
In berlin the first thing tht you will see is the "Fernsehturm", the TV tower, which is the tallest structure in the European Union with 368 meters located in downtown, "Mitte", at AlexanderPlatz, the old center district of East Berlin.
If you start in East Berlin and you study in Social Science School, you are interest in left political think, or you are interest in architecture maybe you will be interest to visit Karl Marx Alle, which is a boulevard avenue lined by monumental residential and comercial buildings, designed in the Socialist Classicism.
Berlin is like an explotion of culture in your face, you can go to museum island where you can find too many important work of art history like greece, egyptian, roman, clasic art. The East Side Gallery is an inevitable place to go too, is an exhibition of art painted on the last existing places of the Berlin Wall.
There are a lot of festivals like Berlinale a Film Festival. It is one of the world's leanding film festival and most reputable media events. You also can find design, architecture, and music (if you like classic and jazz music this is you place) festivals.
Well, I could write about Berlin for a long time because is a very passionate city wich excited you until you blood. I want someday go and live and study in this increible city. To do that i have to learn a lot of German and improve a lot my english.
See you next week.
