I'm Laura, I'm 28 and I've been working in Bristol since January 2013, when I arrived to fulfil a 6 month internship.
The university that organised my internship programme put me in touch with Bristol Intern Group to help find a company to match my interests and experience.I arrived then in Bristol with an agreement signed with an event production company and the idea of staying a couple of weeks. Now, it has been almost one year and six months since, after a proper contract with the first company I’ve now started a new job and I'm still here!!
All this time my hosts, my colleagues and people in Bristol have been so helpful and friendly I couldn't imagine a better ambience for improving your English. I recommend you live in a house with native English speakers - you can find students and other people elsewhere so, on top of practising your speaking at home, you can meet different people with different backgrounds which makes the experience much more interesting! You will also have the opportunity to get to know Bristol, a city that has so much to offer. Concerts, festivals, theatre... there is always something to do and something new to discover. There are many activities, especially for young people so after a day out you can come back home with lots of new friends. Overall, it’s an experience you will never forget!
