Roxane's story in London City

My name is Roxane Chapillon I am 19 years old, I live in the Parisian suburbs. I am currently in 3rd years of business school at IPAG in Paris and for this year I have to do 1 year of expatriation internship and university. I am in London for an internship that I do at YourHouseLondon for 4 month until december.This internship will permit to me to improve my english.
I live in Bermondsey where I share a flat with 5 people.

I chose London to do my internship because it's a lively city, full of history and it's a young city. There is always something to do or to see here.
I think that at the end of my internship there will still be so many places that I will have seen or visited.
London weren't my first choice for my internship but now I have no regrets for choosing London as a destination for my first semester.

I am arrived 1 month ago in London alone and I never left my parents for such a long time so the first days were a little bit complicated for me then I have met my news flatmates, they are amzing. I was scared about london transport but finally it is very simple, you can go everywhere with the transports. I have took the Oyster card because it's more simple and cheaper than buy a ticket each day and you can take all of the transports with this one (bus, tube, railway).
For the moment I really love this city and I wish  everyone  to come at least once to visit or lie in this extraordinary city.

Lou's story in London

Hi, my name is Lou, I am 20 years old and I live in a little village around Paris in France. I am a third-year student at IPAG Business School in Paris and during this year I have to both study and carry out an internship in a foreign country to complete my year. So, I am back from Barcelona where I spent 5 months at EAE Business School with Erasmus students. Spain was a first amazing experience of living abroad by meeting new people, getting to know another culture, working in a different way, improving languages…! I was very happy with this opportunity and I am even happier of doing this again in London for my internship at YourHouseLondon. Today is my first day and I will be working here for 4 months, from February to June 2020.

I am staying in a flat in Notting Hill with a friend from my school and 3 other flatmates. I only arrived 2 days ago in this huge city and I already noticed how nice and helpful people are here! It feels really good to live in a city like this and it makes it less scary to be abroad for this time length.

Why did I choose London?

I chose to do my internship in London because I had only been there twice for very short periods of 2 and 3 days, but they were amazing days and I did not have the time to see and visit everything that I wanted, so, I had already decided a long time ago that I would come back to spend more time here. Now that it’s done, I can say that London is a very dynamic city with so many activities to do like cruises on the River Thames, many monuments and parks to see, museums to visit, beautiful streets to walk in… I think London is a city where you can never get bored! I can only recommend you to visit this city if you haven’t done it yet, you won’t be disappointed!

Thanks to this opportunity, I will have the time to visit everything that I need to visit in London, maybe visit other cities in the country and of course this internship will allow me to have a first experience in Real estate and also improve my English skills.

I can't wait to see what this experience holds for me!
