Here we are! My six-week work placement at MCA is over. I had a wonderful stay here in Manchester, and surely will come back!
I changed my mind about Manchester, in the right way, but also changed my mind about the idea I had to live in England in the future.
At first, I didn’t like Manchester. I thought it was a grey city, where it was always raining and where people only thought about work. Remember, on my first weekend, I thought “how am I going to survive here?”! Then I met the lovely Ingrid and Gee, the amazing students living at MCA, and the sun finally came out!
There wasn’t as much rain as I expected, so it was even better!
On the other hand, I changed my mind about living in the England. People sure are nice, but they don’t seem to know how to clean their houses. Or maybe the problem was just that I didn't live at MCA? I hope so!
I did enjoy my stay, but wouldn’t be able to live in England. I must admit that the weather is quite depressing, the food still scares me, and I just miss French food to be honest.
Now let’s talk about my work placement.
I came here thinking “okay, this is the only company that accepted your application, so don’t expect too much from it”. With no expectations, I thought everything I had to do was amazing, my managers were so cool, and I was the luckiest student of my class. You can only be happy when you don’t expect anything!
MCA Languages is a really cool place to work and live in, and I would recommend it to anyone. The work I was given was exactly what I had learnt in class, and I felt really trusted when my manager gave me something to do.
The three students I was in charge of became my friends as we were about the same age, but they still respected me. Even if the four of us were French, we only spoke English together, and that’s something I am really proud of!
To end this beautiful experience, here are some photos of my best memories in Manchester.
