My experience of working for George T&D – By Erika

I am Erika and I come from northern Italy and I came in UK to do an internship.

I go to the High School where I study international relationship of marketing.

I am here with two friends and classmates, Beatrice and Cristian.

We found this place through Inlingua School and Create on the Square chose us to work.

On Monday 5th, my friends and I came there and met our tutor, Tanya.

We did some easy but important things.

We took part of a project from the beginning. This consists in doing market researches between local community and find out what they want and need.

It is a very captivating and fascinating experience. In my country knocking on door wouldn’t be possible because people are not helpful and willing as they are here.

Then we created some persona profiles, where we described different people that were looking for new ways and new jobs, trying to achieve an aim.

This was very difficult and Beatrice and I worked hard.

I liked doing that because it helped me practising our written English.

We took part of the Christmas market and we helped Tanya, Megan and Lizzie during the day. It was one of the best experience I have ever had. It was like we were in a movie. Incredible experience that will be in my heart forever.

A day we went to a meeting in a farm and it was very nice. We were in contact with the nature. Very nice!

On Friday we did the Laptop Friday, where we shared our project.

The project consists in run a Pop Up Shop on Saturdays starting in January.

We worked a lot for this and I loved it. I think it is an amazing idea.

Cristian, Beatrice and I created a web site. It was the first time that we did that.

Then we shared it on social Networks.

At the moment we have got very good results and I am happy of this.

So, this is my little experience her in the U.K. I think that will help me in the future and it is very important. Now I feel more confident with English, especially with the listening and the speaking.

I would like to thank all the people here, they are very special.
