IT and all the rest: Feeling like an octopus

My name is Antony and I am currently in my second year of D.U.T. Informatique equivalent to two years university for computer sciences.

When I came here I was afraid because everybody spoke English perfectly and I had trouble to understand what they talked to me about.

But there are several ways to improve yourself very quickly. First of all we are in a totally English environment: you speak English, you eat English and you sleep English. But also there are a lot of activities (such as workshops, games and so on) in order to improve your communication skills and obviously your English.

I am doing an internship in computer science also called IT. I thought I was just going working on websites and nothing else but it was a real surprise to discover all the different tasks that we have here. We are working on websites as well as on the company network. We have two main purposes: answer to the needs of the company and to the needs of the people working for the company. You almost feel like you are an octopus doing several tasks at the same time. Personally, I have even gained the nickname Octopus, but that is a long story.

I find this job really interesting because I love to working with the people, talking with them and finding a solution to help them. There is a real exchange between us.

As everybody I have my own project which I could decide myself. It’s really interesting to begin a project and to see its evolution to the final steps and results. However I can work on different projects less “important” at the same time if I want work on other things. We are able to manage our time the way we want to.

This was the part about my job, now let me introduce you my life here:

I am living in the biggest house, called Foreshore, on the seaside. There are a lot of people who live in this house so it’s really easy to improve your English. Furthermore there are several rooms such as the pool room, the fitness room, the cinema room and so on. Also, here is an opportunity to speak English and to learn about several different cultures and the people who live here.

As I love travelling we are making a lot of trips to London, Canterbury, Ashford and so on. To visit them and mainly to party!

I hope you will enjoy your internship here !

Thanks for reading my little article about my experience

    I couldnt agree more! Its much easier when you are surrounded by people that speak the language you want to learn. As much as u are shy or feel insecure about your knowledge in the language, you are left with no other choice than to speak it, if you want to be understood.

    I go to see day-to-day some sites and sites to read articles, however this blog gives feature based articles.

  • Elisabeth says:

    I have been browsing on-line more than three hours
    as of late, but I never discovered any fascinating article
    like yours. It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
