From school desk to the front desk – my internship experience

Hello, my name is Cinzia Matrascia. I am 23 years old and I am from Switzerland. (That’s me on the left!)

A little about me: I started studying English in England for 6 months at Intermediate level. Then I was thinking I would like to do the F.C.E. but I wasn’t sure where! I thought America or Africa but then it was clear I would like to go to Cape Town because there it is warm and also a completely other culture.


I (heart) EC language school Cape Town!


So, in a short time I moved from England to Cape Town and it was the best move ever! I met a lot of new students and also local people, they are very friendly and kind. I started my F.C.E course and it was very tricky in the beginning but more and more I felt comfortable. I had a very good experience. After 2 months I was thinking to work in Cape Town and I was looking to extend my Visa. EC school is not only good for studying, they gave me the biggest chance in my life – to work for them as an intern and this was awesome.I was surprised but also excited.
