Sometimes we are lucky enough to have interns completing their work experience in our Twin office in London, such as André Gonçalves, our Work Experience intern from Portugal. So we asked André to share his experience about his time here:
Q.) What is good about taking an internship in the UK?
A.) An internship in the UK is a way to get you out of your comfort zone which in turn helps you grow in many levels, such as language, maturity and independence.
Q.) What do you like about the UK?
A.) The UK, as one of the most international cities in the world, is rather very welcoming. The people are incredibly nice and commuting is really easy.
Q.) What do you like about your internship?
A.) My internship is a perfect environment for me to practise and perfect my language skills as well as working in a “safe” working space where everyone is here to help.
Q.) Do you think you have had the chance to improve your English?
A.) I definitely improved my English. Practise makes perfect and here you get to practise 24/7.
Q.) Would you take an internship in the UK again?
A.) Given the possibility, I would definitely repeat this experience.
