About Meike Haagsman
Hi! My name is Meike Haagsman and I am currently a second-year
student of the English Language and Culture programme. Aside from
the study’s regular programme, I follow some extra courses
within other departments of the Faculty of Arts. I partake in a
yearclub via student association Dizkartes and in my free time I
like to write or watch classic movies.
Why English Language and Culture?
I was originally in a different programme; technical study.
Although I was fascinated by this, I soon realized that it
wasn’t an interest that defined me. So I asked myself, what
did I find more interesting than anything else (after all, I will
likely spend the next 50 years of my doing this), and that was
English. I have loved the language since my very first lesson,
which is covered by the ‘linguistics’ part of the
studies. The other main part, literature, suits me as well; stories
are a passion of mine (whether I write them, read them, or watch
them). In other words, this study is a perfect mix for me and
others who have similar interests. In addition, there are many
benefits to studying English: you’ll acquire many useful
skills about language interpretation and usage, learn about history
and culture, and your English will be excellent when you
