Hello everyone, my name is Anh Viet, I am 25 years old, and I am doing an apprenticeship as an Administrative Assistant at the Senate Department for Interior and Sports in Berlin, Germany to become a Public Servant.

In my vocational school, I am taking part in the language project, that means I have more English lessons, and in exchange, I can do an Erasmus+internship in Europe for 5 months. Before I came to London, we had a lot of exams and it was necessary to pass them all. I would like to say thank you to my class teacher for giving me the opportunity to do an internship in London at Tti School of English in Camden Town.

One of my first challenges was to find affordable accommodation in London, it is not an easy thing to do and I was afraid of being scammed. In the end, I found a room on Airbnb, located in Holloway, very close to Camden Town, I just need to walk 30 minutes to work, very convenient and I won’t be late!
I always get very excited about going abroad for a long period of time and this was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Everyone here is so kind, friendly and helpful. Surprisingly, I love London and British cuisine.

My work time is from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm with one-hour lunchtime and my basic tasks at work are to assist with students arrivals on Mondays, put the new student details into the database, print student cards, class lists, registers, timetables, the starters list, the social programme sign up sheets and prepare the E-learning platform and the attendance letter for the students. Furthermore, I correct and update level tests, put the attendance of the students at the end of the week in the database and do some social media tasks.

During my time here at the Tti School, I made a lot of good friends, we did many many many activities almost every day, especially at the weekend. Sometimes it exhausting, but thanks to them, I have seen and discovered so many different places in the UK and London.
