Hello, my name is Alice, I am 22 years old. I am studying my fourth year at the Burgundy School of Business in Dijon, a small town in France. My main fields are Management, Finance and Marketing. Currently in a gap year, I have been in London for two months. At the beginning I worked in a charity shop to improve my English and to have a new professional experience. Then I started an internship at EC English School London and I am here until the end of August. I am assisting the accommodation coordinator. Indeed, students can take their accommodation with EC London, we have many residences and house families to propose you. I have got the great opportunity to do my internship in this company because I think it’s the best place to work and to study. All the people are very welcoming. In addition, I can say that it is a wonderful experience to work with people that come from all around the world. In London, I share a flat with other people near Canary Wharf. There are many beautiful places to see in London. If you want to keep in the loop, don’t forget to watch every week the articles that we write on this blog !
Name: Gaby Age: 17 years old Nationality: English Gaby is taking part in work experience with our Student Services team for the next week. We would like to welcome her to our team and hope that she will enjoy her stay in the city and gain a lot from working here at EC London! She is currently an A-level student and has an interest for languages, something we all share! Let’s find out more about Gaby and her work experience at the school of English EC London! Studies: “I currently attend a sixth form college near Manchester and study French, German, Maths and Modern History. In the future I hope to progress into a career using my language skills, so the lessons I learn in the EC London school are perfect for giving me more experience and understanding of language.” Future plans: “Once I leave college, I am hoping to go onto university to study a joint degree in French and German. I am really excited to develop my knowledge of different cultures and also be able to fluently speak another language!” Hobbies: “I am a massive reader and love all sorts of different books from the Harry Potter series (highly recommended) to classics by Jane Austen. I also love to travel which is why coming to London for my work experience week suits me perfectly. “In my spare time I listen to a lot of music as well, I find it extremely relaxing and it’s a good way to let off steam after a long day at college.”
