Betriebspraktikum in Frankreich - Montpellier

Minha experiência de estagio no Institut Européen de Français me possibilitou uma imersão na língua e na cultura francesa, além de ter – me permitido fazer belíssimos encontros. O ambiente na escola é extremamente agradável e caloroso. O contato com os alunos, com os professores e toda a equipe de L’IEF foi ao mesmo tempo amigável e profissional. Além do trabalho pude participar de diversos ateliês lingüísticos, colaborando dessa maneira para o aperfeiçoamento do francês.

Je voulais absolument faire un stage en entreprise afin d’améliorer mon application de la langue française. Vu que je suis belge, de la coté Flandre, la langue française est essentiel pour travailler à notre capitale, Bruxelles. Grâce à l’IEF et en particulier grâce à Magaly, j’ai trouvé une place de stage extraordinaire. Chez Duo Display, j’ai eu le temps de ma vie, travaillant au sein de l’équipe marketing et financier. Pratiquer la langue française avec les françaises est certainement conseillé, après d’avoir appris une bonne base de la langue française à l’IEF. Je voudrais remercier l’IEF en me donnant la possibilité d’apprendre la langue française. Et en plus, j’ai trouvé un travail comme auditeur à Bruxelles! Merci et à bientôt!
