My name is Lena and I’m the new Student Services Intern at EC London. I’m a twenty year-old German girl and I’m going to stay at EC London for three months.
My hometown is located in the south west of Germany, which is pretty close to France and Luxemburg.
After graduating from school, I started studying German, English and Italian for my Bachelor’s degree at Saarland University. Once I will have finished my studies, I would love to work as a journalist or in a cultural institution.
I’m glad I got the opportunity to undertake this internship here at EC London. It is a great opportunity to improving my English but also to meeting students from all over the world. Due to this I can also improve my basic knowledge of French and Italian and maybe gain insights into other languages as well.
I chose EC London because London is my favourite city and I think it is a great place to go for if you want to learn English. There are so many people from different nations paired with traditional British culture, so it is nice to see the multicultural atmosphere of the city.
There are so many things to do in London, which is great because you will never get bored. When I walk around London on my own I usually go to the museums. I am a huge art lover and I am very happy that there are tons of great museums here. I also love London for its parks because I think it is really nice to have a walk in the country to take a break from busy times in the city.
Living and working in a city like London is a great experience for me and so far I am enjoying my time here. I am very much looking forward to the next weeks!
Thanks for reading.
