Hi everybody! My name is Maryam, I am a 21-year-old moroccan student from France. I am studying foreign languages (english and spanish) applied to Business and Trade, in Avignon University. It is my third year and and for the last semester of my Bachelor’s degree I was given the opportunity to study or make an internship abroad, that is the reason why I have chosen the beautiful city of London! During my stay, I live in a host family with my friend from France and two other amazing girls. This is already my second week at EC London and I feel very comfortable, I learned a lot from Dan, Siham and Alice. The staff is very nice to me and so are the students. During the week I have several things to do, I begin on Monday with welcoming the new students. I take photos of them for their student ID cards. I am also in charge of answering phone calls, sending emails, chasing students and much more. It is my first experience as an intern, and I really like it. To sum up : I am 100% sure that I will miss this school and this city. If you would like to know more about us and Learn English in London please come to school to visit us! Thanks for reading, Maryam ♥
Hi everyone, My name is Michela, I’m 19 and I come from Cuneo, a small town in the north of Italy. I graduated last July: I studied languages such as French, Spanish and English at the High School in Cuneo, where I live. The last year of High School, as you probably know, is a year of big changes: everyone is thinking about what to do the following year, you have to make a lot of decisions. I was uncertain about what to do next, so I decided to take a gap year. That was surely the best decision I made so far! What am I doing here and for how long I’m going to stay here? I’m the new Academic Intern, and I’m going to stay here until the end of December. I’m here at EC London since the 6th of October and I’m really enjoying my experience. One of the best way to study English in London is to do an internship, isn’t it? EC offers great opportunities to meet people from all over the world, to know their cultures and, of course to learn new interesting things during the challenging classes. The thing that I like the most about EC school is that you can easily talk with lots of people of your age, as everyone come here with the same purpose: learning English and make some new friends. I have been asked what my hobbies are: first of all, I really enjoy travelling (that it’s one of the reason that brought me here), then I love everything that concerns with arts, for example reading, listening to music, visiting museums, watching lots of movies and tv series. I also quite enjoy having long walks with my headphones on. The main goal that I would like to achieve …
