“ Hello I am Assa, I am a TCOM student, I did my Internship last January in Cork, Ireland. I was selected among Euro Section students to be part of the erasmus + Program which allows students from vocational high school all over Europe to do part of their interniship/PFMP abroad.
Looking back, I consider myself very lucky that I got to spend a month in Cork training for my specialty (Sales & Trade) while developing my English skills at the same time.
It was a very fruitful and interesting experience.
On a daily basis, I worked for a charity shop, OXFAM, ( days a week. The working hours were monday to Friday. I loved my host family they were really nice and made me feel really comfortable. They had 2 children and a dog. I got on well with everyone. The lunch and dinner times were slightly different from the french ones. The food: very international : pasta bolognese, burgers, pizzas …
Again it was a very positive experience; I would recommend it to all pupils and students if they had the opportunity.”
