New intern at EC London 30+

My name is Myriam, I am French and I come from Grenoble. I am studying Foreign Languages Applied to Business and for my 3rd and last year of my degree I decided to go abroad, more precisely to London, the city of Queen Elizabeth. I am currently working as an intern in EC London 30+ reception. My main tasks are to welcome new students and help them out if they have any concerns. Moreover EC London 30+ offers manifold activities to the students and that is why part of my job includes promoting those events and updating the official websites of EC London. The people working in EC London are all very nice and mindful, as for the working environment it is very welcoming. Some of the new students struggle a lot with English when they first come, but the EC London 30+ team is a multicultural team so do not worry, you’ll always find someone who speaks your language. I have chosen to do my internship in Great Britain because I wanted to improve my English and discover a new city. When I first arrived to London, the first thing that disrupted me were cars and buses riding on the left side of the road ! Maybe I’ll get used to this with time, who knows … Today is my first week in London and I did not get the time to visit a lot (expect from the underground obviously). Despite that I am determined to visit every street corner of LONDON! Other languages: French, Spanish, Arabic. Favourite movies: Harry Potter, The Green Mile. Favourite singers: Sam Cooke, Jorja Smith, Joy Crookes, Etta James. Would you also like to experience this journey ? Then let’s join us and Learn English in London !

Loveday at EC London 30+

Happy Loveday everyone! Here at EC London we are celebrating all kinds of love today, the love for family, friends, partners and yourself. Valentine’s day should not only be about relationships. We want to unite our students, to come together and spread love. Therefore, we encouraged our students to write love notes, in their language or English. We then created a wall FULL of love. In addition, we asked students and teachers to bring cakes, chocolate or sweets, to share over a lovely lunch chat! We had a great time and the students arrived in their classrooms with a wide smile of their faces, all ready for their lessons. We played love songs all day in our 30+ reception, a mix between foreign songs and English, therefore, students could share their favourite songs with their friends and us! “The best thing to hold onto in life is each other”, is our quote of the day. Take care of your loved ones, share some extra love and do not forget to give some love to yourself! I would highly recommend to Learn English in London at the 30+ school. Come and have fun with us! – EC London 30+

Our new intern in the EC London 30+ reception

We would like to introduce our new intern in the 30 + reception in London: My name is Linn Hidfors and I am the new intern in the 30+ reception. I am from Sweden, Gothenburg, where I am doing my last year of school. In Sweden I am studying Economics focused on business. The program that I am doing is also offering seven weeks of internship abroad, this is an EU project called Erasmus +. I applied for the internship and here I am in London now until the end of February. When I applied for the internship I wanted to work in an English-speaking country. In addition, I wanted a challenge. Therefore, London was the perfect place for me: A huge city with a lot of people. I come from a big city in Sweden, but I still got shocked with how many people are wandering around in London. I wanted to know what it was like to live in such a huge city with over 8 million citizens. It has been three weeks of my period here and I love London as a city. Additionally, I really enjoy my job here at EC London. The classrooms are nice and the location of the school is central. My co-workers are amazing and the same goes for all the students! Quick questions and answers about Linn: Other languages: Swedish and a bit of Spanish. Hobbies: I love working out as well as spending time with my friends! Favourite series: My favourite series is Friends. It is so fun, love it. Favourite food: I love tacos! Favourite spot in London: Probably somewhere with a good view of London, such as the Shard, Sky Garden and the restaurant Duck & Waffle. I would highly recommend Learning English in London at the 30+ school. Come and have fun with us along … Read more
