Place: Belthorn Primary School, Cape Town
Time: 01st March – 28th April 2013
Hi. My name is Marielena I am 19 years old and I did my internship in South Africa. In Cape Town I worked in a Primary School. I was in Grate 1b with pupils in the age from 6 to 9. Most of the time I assisted the learners with their daily tasks and gave additional support for slow learners and was acting as helper for every need. In the afternoon I worked in a Children’s home. It was a children home were only live boys. I played a lot with the kids and distracted them from their tragic cases. Finally after 8 weeks internship in South Africa I definitely can say: For me this internship was the best time in my life - until now. I collected such a lot of new experiences and I learned so much for my future. This time is unforgettable!

activities: Being in America was a lifetime experience. Even if I was afraid of riding the horse at the beginning, I got used to them more and more.

Another highlight of my trip to America were my visits to New York City. This city is amazing, all the buildings are huge and very impressive. All in all, I had a great time in America, I learned a lot and improved my English.
