My London Work’s Experience
Bonjour, comment ça va? (With a British accent) If you are French, you can hear that often from English people! I’m currently on the second part of my gap year at Bloomsbury International, London as a trainee, until 22nd August. I’m going to work for the different departments, registrar department, sales, marketing, social programme, so you’ll meet me sooner or later.
My name is Clement, I’m a French student doing a master degree in a Business School and my major is accounting and international finance. I’m from the south east of France, where it’s always sunny, you can believe me.
I’m really happy to be working for Bloomsbury International, the team is really amazing!
London is not really new for me, I lived here two years ago for 4 months. But I definitively love this city and this is why I came back. To be honest, I came also to improve my English and working in an English School is the best way, isn’t it!?
I can tell you why I Love London. London is a cosmopolitan city, you can meet people from everywhere in the world, I also speak Spanish and I like speaking with Hispanic people. Moreover, the atmosphere is very cool in London mainly when you go to a pub to drink a beer and watch a rugby or football game.
I’m not going to talk too much about London or what you can do in London, I’m sure you know already a lot of things, if not you have to join us on the social programme.
Every month, we run a big selection of activities for you to join and make the most out of your trip to London. Every Monday, we have a London Walk where you can see some famous London landmarks on your very first day! Then, in the evening we take everyone to a local pub for Welcome Drinks. This is a very popular activity and everyone always has a great time making new friends and practising their English. In the video below you will see how much fun we have!
We also have lots of other activities every month, for example museum visits, markets, picnics in the park, visits to famous London landmarks and even weekend trips to other cities in the UK. You can see a full calendar of events on our website (click here). You can also see lots of photos from social activities (click here).
I hope you enjoy your trip in London and your experience at Bloomsbury International. Of course I’m available if you have any questions about London or Bloomsbury, it will be a pleasure to help you.
See you soon in London!
Have fun with English
