Erasmus Reporter

Engaged in an internship in Leipzig, Valencia and Malta, our students are pulling the first sums of this fantastic experience. Here is a report of their first impressions after a month of internship abroad.

LIPSIA

"My workplace is a very creative and modern place with a lot of young people from all over the world. I work in the Commercial Performance Team with the task of performing operational market research: like analysis of prices and activities of various competitors." Pietro

"The first cultural difference I notice compared to Italy is the dinner time that normally happens around 5pm." Merieme

"The colleagues are very kind and helpful, they are attentive to how I behave but at the same time they give me confidence, leaving me my personal space. The atmosphere is calm and friendly; working six hours a day in such a pleasant environment is not heavy at all." Enrica

"I find Leipzig to be a very convenient city because you can get around easily thanks to the punctuality of the transportation. I'm getting along very well and I'm really happy here!" Clarissa

Lipsia

VALENCIA

"I find myself having to disprove the rumor that in order to be able to speak Spanish you only need to add an "s" at the end of each word...it's far more complicated than that. However, I can say that after one month my progress in terms of language is evident. Being in contact with the customers of the hotel for many hours a day helps me a lot." Alice

"A particular habit of the Spanish is to have a late lunch and dinner. You don't have lunch before 2 p.m. and you don't have dinner before 9 or even 10 p.m." Diana

"The first few weeks here in Valencia helped me to adapt. After that I started to fully experience the city, the language and the relationships, also thanks to an excursion to two magical places in Spain: Guadalest and Altea" Lucrezia

Valencia

MALTA

"Inside the pastry shop where I am doing my internship experience I am involved in the preparation and decoration of pastries, monoportions, macarons and chocolates. The balance of the experience at the moment is definitely positive and I hope to continue learning new things in the coming months." Valentina

"I have been doing the job I have dreamed of since I was a child, because it allows me to be in contact with customers from all over the world as I am qualified to sell tickets for the entrance to the museum "Casa Rocca Piccola". This allows me to speak languages such as French, German and Spanish, as well as having incredibly improved my skills with English." Maria Ludovica

"Within a month of my arrival in Malta, I was able to meet and get in touch with many people of different nationalities and languages." Beatrice

"I am working in an international company, AquaBiotech Group, I am getting along well and learning a lot every day. My English has improved a lot and I'm learning new words every day." Andrea
