KRISTIN Engels, an exchange student from Düsseldorf, Germany, has been doing work experience at The Daily Examiner over the past week.

Kristin will be in Grafton for five months with her hosts, the Ferry-Rheinberger family.

"My host family is very nice and lovely and they have really made me feel like part of the family," said Kristen.

"I enjoy every day with them."

In Düsseldorf Kristin lives in the city with her mum and dad.

"My family are very close," said Kristen.

She was excited to see Australia's great beaches, test her basketball skills against Aussie talent and of course, buy some souvenirs.

She has also been loving Grafton's small-town feel and running into people she knows on the street.

"Australia has made a great impression on me; it is very different to where I am from but also very nice," said Kristin.

"I have been here for seven weeks now and every day I like it a little bit more.

"At the beginning it was hard to understand everything because Australians speak quickly.

"But when I didn't understand something, people speak slower and try to explain things to me.

"It is getting better day to day," Kristin said.
