Meet Anglo-Continental’s Marketing Intern, Aline Baumeler

I have been learning English for nine years in Switzerland. I have spent the past two years working for an international electric company where I had to communicate a lot in English which I really enjoyed.  Last year I spent time in France for language stay.  I had an amazing time there and I learnt how to learn a different language in the actual country with native speakers around me.  As I had experienced how much fun an exchange could be, I wanted to do one more in England.

Now, through a special kind of apprenticeship, called KV-Plus, I am able to learn English for six months in Bournemouth and work there as well.  This is why I am doing my internship at Anglo-Continental. 

Doing an internship is one of the best ways to improve your English skills and gain more fluency. I think it’s really fascinating and interesting to be in touch with people from all around the world. 

Bournemouth is a lovely town and you can do many different activities.  When you go out in the town it’s a good way to learn English, but I recommend that you also make friends with other students from all over the globe. This means you have to speak English. It is really interesting to go out with people from different cultures.  You learn something about other cultures.  It is also nice to teach them a little bit about your culture.

Don’t worry about making friends.  All the people are really open-minded and want to get know other students as well, so it’s easy to make new friends.

To take part in an exchange is one of the best things you can do.  In addition to learning the language you will get so much experience about life and after this time you will have so many amazing memories.  I would recommend it to everyone.
