Ilyar Mikayilov

Mein Name ist Ilyar Mikayilov und ich bin 27. Schon ab 5. Klasse habe ich angefangen Deutsch zu lernen. Aufgrund meines Interesse zu deutscher Sprache habe ich mich an der Universität für den Fach Deutschlandkunde entschieden. Während meines Studiums habe ich durch Stipendien sowohl an inländischen, als auch an ausländischen Sprachprogrammen teilgenommen. Dabei habe ich sehr viel über deutsche Kultur, Geschichte und Menschen gelernt. Im Laufe der Zeit habe ich viele Gäste aus Deutschland und deutschsprachigen Ländern gehabt, mit denen ich jede Ecke von Aserbaidschan durchgereist habe. Durch diese vielmaligen Ausflüge ist ein reiches Wissen über mein Land entstanden. Ich würde mich sehr freuen, dieses Wissen über mein eigenes Land an die Gäste weiterzugeben. My name is Ilyar Mikailov. I am 27. I've started to learn German language from 5th grade. Due to my interest in German, I preferred the profession of German studies at the university. During my studies, I took part in both German and foreign language programs through scholarships. I learned a lot about German culture, history and people as a result. In the course of time, I have had many guests from Germany and German-speaking countries, with whom I have crossed every corner of Azerbaijan. Due to these excursions, I have gained a rich knowledge of my country. I would be delighted to share this knowledge about my country with the guests.
