I did my workexperience at EduVentures in Windhoek, Namibia from the 30th of March – 15th of May 2011. EduVentures belongs to the National Museum of Namibia. The main thing what EduVentures is doing is to make expeditions with students together with scientists. But during my internship I planned the Biodiversity Action Day (BDay) 2011 (Tag der Artenvielfalt). For that I did a lot of secretary work like writing letters and emails, phoning with customers and making excel sheets. At the end of my internship I was part of the organizing committee during the actual BDay. All in all my internship was great although I did not really improve my English skills. I do not regret it in any way.
Hola: Soy Jakob de la FA2 y hice mis prácticas en Segovia, una ciudad bonita cerca de Madrid. Fui alli en moto. Estuve trabajando en una tienda de motos. La mayoria del tiempo trabajé en el taller con Jorge, el mecánico. Y como casi siempre charlabamos, porque no tuvimos tanto trabajo, aprendí bastante! Viví en el apartamento del jefe. Es un hombre muy sympatico. Comíamos juntos y me ensenó la ciudad de Segovia. Sus hijas, Lucía y Andrea que tienen 20 y 22 anos, estuven en Madrid conmigo para ensenarme la ciudad. Es una de las ciudades más bonitas que conozco! Fue una experiencia inolvidable, volveré seguramente!
I did my work experience with Igaming-Consulting in Malta. The consultancy gives licenses to betting companies of all over the world. I worked in a little office where I translated the homepage, wrote some advertising letters and did general office work. I spent my time with a host family which was really kind and friendly. They helped me when I had any problems and they were always there when I needed somebody to talk to. Together with my roommate from Belgium I went out quite often to meet friends. I got to know people from all over the world and I think that I improved my English a lot. All in all it was a fantastic experience and I don´t want to miss it.
Hello my name is Manuela Kuhn. I did my internship in Ireland and worked 6 weeks at the Walter Raleigh Hotel. It’s a 3-star Bed & Breakfast in Youghal, Cork. My main task was at the reception. So I checked people in and out, took reservations, answered the phone and talked to the guests. Sometimes I helped in the bar or with the preparation of communion parties. I enjoyed the work very much, especially the communication and the contact to other people. My colleagues were very nice friendly and helpful. During the 6 weeks I stayed at my cousin’s house. In my free-time I visited Dublin, Cork and many other sights like the Cliffs of Mohor. It was a beautiful stay and I can really recommend it.

Hey, We are Miriam, Laura and Jana. We did our internship in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates for the “Claridge Hotel”. Usually we worked at the reception with colleagues from all over the world and we also got to know new people with different cultures. We had the opportunity to stay in the hotel for free. In our leisure time we visited famous buildings like the “Burj Khalifa”, “Burj Al Arab” and more. Also we spent one day in the desert. All in all it was a great experience. We were very satisfied with our work placement and our colleagues were very helpful and friendly. So, this internship is a big chance for students who like to collect experiences abroad.
I did my work experience in London with Sirona Dental Systems which is the world’s leading producer of dentist equipment. I worked in the sales office and dealt with incoming orders and marketing strategies. Furthermore, I was involved in setting up the new showroom which was very challenging. Within the 6 weeks I stayed in a B&B Hotel where I got to know people from all over the world. I was quite impressed by this great city and really enjoyed my stay.

Salut! Je m’appelle Tanja et mon stage s’est déroulé dans l’hôtel Wilson á Dijon.C’est un petit hôtel trois étoiles et dispose de 27 chambres. J’ai travaillé á la reception. Une de mes tâches a été par example accueillir et accompagner les clients. Le travail a été trés intéressant parce qu’ on a toujours rencontré des gens différents. J’ai habité dans un foyer pour jeunes travailleuses et etudiantes. C’est un foyer seulement pour les filles. Finalement je peux dire les 7 semaines ont été les meilleures de ma vie et c’ était une expérience inoubliable pour moi.
Hola compan?eros! Soy Thea Schulze de la FA 2. Estuve siete semanas en Chile/ Coquimbo para hacer mis prácticas en una empresa americana. Tuve que escribir facturas para los clientes de la empresa. El espan?ol fue muy diferente como el espan?ol en la escuela. Como yo no entiendía mis colegas y mis colegas no me entendieron tampoco tuvimos que hablar en ingles. Viví en una familia muy amable. Lamentablemente no puede hacer nada en mi tiempo libre porque era muy peligroso salir de la casa completamente sola. Fue una experencia de la vida muy buena.
Hey, my name is Tobias Pottmeier and I did my internship at the Oxford House College in London as a student. I participated in 2 different courses. One course helped me to increase my general English skills even more, the other one prepared me for the Cambridge Advanced Certificate in English which I am planning to take. Getting familiar with London and the school was not much of a problem due to my charming classmates. The working atmosphere was rather relaxed but got serious when we talked about important things. My guest family was very open-minded and helpful when ever I had a problem. All in all I would say my internship was a great success and my trip to London was a very good experience.
Hey, my name is Willi Stiller and did my internship in England. As you can see I was in London. I did my internship in a school called Queenswell Junior School. I worked there with the 5LW. The 5 stands for Year 5 and LW for Laura Went who is the class teacher of this class. I worked as a teaching assistant and I really enjoyed the work with the kids because we had a lot of fun at work and I learned a lot about different cultures of each pupil. This experience was worth it because you had to live in a foreign country on your own and care for yourself. I would recommend this kind of backgrounds because it is a great experience four your life.

I did my 6-week internship at Van Merksteijn Fences in Almelo, which is part of Van Merksteijn International based in the Netherlands. The company is specialized in manufacturing panels and reinforcement products and is well known as a family business. The scope of duties was varied in all aspects. I translated pricelists and offers from German into English, I phoned with customers, conducted a market research in the UK and did the paperwork. The working atmosphere was totally different in comparison to Germany. It was very harmonious. In Germany they think more in formal structures. Furthermore my colleagues were very nice and friendly and helped me if I had any problems with my tasks. But I would have liked to have more responsibility and to be involved in more difficult jobs. But all in all I had a great time in the Netherlands.
Ciao! Mi chiamo Zubeyda Akkurt. Sono stata dal 03.04 al 29.05 a Riccione Marina (Emilia Romagna), cioè sul mare all’Est d’Italia fra Ravenna e Urbino, due città d’arte italiane molto famose. In questa regione il più utilizzato e preferito mezzo di trasporto individuale è la bici. Lavorando da una cameriera in un albergo a quattro stelle, si chiama Belvedere, non ho solo migliorato la mia conoscenza della lingua italiana, bensì ho fatto anche conoscenza con molte nuove persone. Inoltre ho vinto molti amici con i quali mi trovo ancora in contatto adesso. Sicuramente avevo dei giorni buoni e cattivi, tuttavia potevo ridere e divertirmi la maggior parte del tempo. Attraverso lo stage di due mesi ho portato molto a casa mia: un sentimento del paese, esperienze di lavoro, la lingua, città, spiaggia, la cultura e la memoria della gente. Per me è un’esperienza indimenticabile che non vorrei perdere.
