A French student who learns English in London

I’m studying in a business school in Marseille, and to get on my 2nd year and boost my CV, I have to perform an internship in a foreign country. This work placement will be very important for my future and I chose England because I like its economic system. Also, my aim is improving my English and I thought that studying English in London would enable me to increase my linguistic skills.

When I came to London the 10th of January 2009 I was very happy because it was the first time I went to an Anglo-Saxon country.
I immediately felt some differences with France, through the behaviour of the people.
In fact, when I arrived to the airport and I caught the train to Central London I walked slowly whilst people ran everywhere. I understood that in this country people are very dynamic but also fairly stressed.

I am doing an internship in marketing and communication at Twin school. This internship is helping me to improve my English a lot. I believe that working in London is a great way to be forced to speak and learn English in a natural, easy way. I am studying English everyday and when I conduct researches or answer the phone I feel like I am learning English a bit more.

Yoshi's London Experience

One of the reasons why I study in Twin is that the school provides us with the opportunity to study English with the motivated people from other countries and the qualified members of staff, as well as work experience even though mine is short term. I have been here in London since December and I leave in the middle of March to graduate from university in Japan so I decided to come here to enjoy spending the rest of my university life in England, of course hoping to improve my English while I am here.

I came to England just a week before the 2-week winter break so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get on well with life in England, hoping to make friends to make my time more enjoyable. However, my classmates and schoolmates were really friendly and I luckily chose the flat with a few schoolmates as room mates, and that has made my stay really fun!

I hope that my blog here helps those who are thinking of studying in Twin step forward and join me!
