I chose Belfast for the course + internship programme offered by ESL. I had a few doubts when I left, because of Northern Ireland’s difficult history, but I quickly forgot about them when I arrived! Belfast is a lively city, where you can meet new people (it’s not a legend, Irish people really are welcoming!) and do cultural activities (museums…and pubs!) as well as sports ones, like hiking on the hills of West Belfast. The most beautiful landscapes are on the north coast: I walked on the Giant's Causeway’s basalt columns, crossed the suspended bridge of Carrick-a-rede, visited the small port of Ballintoy, and much more! As for the school, I was very satisfied of my 4-week course with amazing teachers! I stayed in an apartment next to the school – literally 2 minutes away. It was well equipped and I will always cherish the memories of the time I spent with the other students. Another great advantage: in 5 months, I was always the only French person, which was great because I was forced to speak English all the time!
As for the internship – I was very happy about it. I worked in an interesting company, in an industry that is related to my studies, and my colleagues we absolutely amazing. The proof? At the end of the internship, I was offered a full-time position!
Thank you again!
