My name is Carlo, and I am a 21-year-old chef from Latina, Italy. Working for Gift-Tours through Internship-UK was the most beautiful experience of my life. When I was given the proposal to join the catering internship in the UK, I immediately accepted. Catering for everyone in the organization is not difficult at all, because they make the working hours pleasurable and fun.
This internship was suggested to me by a friend of mine, Giulia, who has been working for Gift-Tours for 6 months. I did not expect to learn English, but it is incredible that, after a week, I could speak the language in a way that people could understand me easily.
Even though before my arrival I was scared due to my low English level, as soon as I arrived here I immediately felt like a member of the group. My first impression when I arrived here was fantastic: I met a group of wonderful people in New Romney, a small coastal town. Gift-Tours offered many recreational activities, that keeps every intern always busy and satisfied inside and outside of work.
When I decided to come here, my only goal was to learn English and share the environment with people from different cultures and different habits. However, the experience in New Romney was much more beyond my expectations. This is because the life in New Romney is wonderful, not only during work hours, but also during free time and parties that allow the interns to gather all together and socialize. Every week there is a theme party, which gives you the opportunity to learn about people from all different cultures including foods, traditions, games and personalities.
All in all, I would like to conclude by encouraging everyone to make this experience, I can assure you that attending a catering internship is a choice impossible to regret!
