Karaoke Nights at EC London!

Hi, this is Federica. I have been working at Ec London for more than one month and now I can say I feel at home. At first it was shocking changing my life. I’m from a small town in Italy, where there is nothing to do. The only thing that you can do during the weekend is to go to another town by car and in order to enjoy your weekend there. In addition, I used to go out with the same friends all the time. The only place that opened up my eyes and mind to a new world was my University, where I could finally meet people coming from different countries and study many foreign languages. London is a new world to me: I can always meet new people from new countries, hang out with them and do plenty of interesting activities such as… the Karaoke Night! Once a week my colleague and I organize a Karaoke night in the school. We move to the 30+ reception, full of comfortable sofas, huge tables with a smart TV and a piano. We start with a piano performance. There’s always someone who likes playing the piano. After this relaxing performances, we turn the microphone on. Let’s start the party! Students choose their favourite songs and they can sing in different languages as well. Yesterday, for example, some French students sang “Allez les blue allez”, the Spanish one performed “Despacito” and so on. We also had a student who won the Voice Kids-France and we enjoyed his karaoke perfomances: he’s such a brilliant and young singer! Everytime we organize this kind of party, I’m always afraid people might get bored or be too shy to sing in public. But yesterday was different than I expected: students got along with each other … Read more

My New Life at EC London!

Hello guys, This is Federica, new intern from EC London! I work in the main reception of the school from the beginning of July. I’m a 24 years old Italian who loves travel and foreign languages and cultures. Since I was a child I use to watch anime and to read comics and manga. When I was a teenager I realized I like everything related to Japanese culture. Moreover, my sisters studied and lived abroad and I traveled many times throughout Europe to visit them. During their University years I realized how travelling makes you a richer person inside. It lets you to discover things that you can’t find in your home country and makes you more ambitious. Moreover, during my bachelor I was a tutor of a Japanese exchange student so I improved my knowledge about Japanese people. They are so different to Western people. But I didn’t give up. Indeed, the more I discover they are different the more I wanted to know them more. That’s because I’m curios about everything is different than my home country culture. I wish one day I could travel throughout all the countries located in the other side of the world. I think these are the main reasons why I started to study foreign languages and Asian studies in University L’Orientale in Naples and the reason why I’m doing my first internship in London. This isn’t my first time in London, actually. I’ve been here several times because my sister used to study in this city and she’s currently working here. Thanks to her I travelled many times in England and I realized how London is a cultural melting pot. For a Japanese culture addicted like me is marvelous. There are a wide range of places where you can find Japanese merchandise, … Read more
