“My stay in Paris was amazing. I can’t find the words to express how much I liked it. Paris is a wonderful city and my working experience in La Chocolaterie, Cyril Lignac’s chocolate shop, went very well. The team was very nice and help me to learn French very quickly. I also had a lot of chance with my accomodation. The AEPP (student residence) is full of very friendly people. I made very good friends and this was a unique experience to live with so many different nationalities in the same home.
I miss my life in Paris so much !
Thank you with all my heart for you help and support.”

“Mon séjour à Paris était incroyable. Je ne trouve pas de mots pour exprimer à quel point ce séjour m’a plu. Paris est une ville merveilleuse et mon expérience dans la Chocolaterie de Cyril Lignac s’est très bien passé. J’y ai travaillé avec une équipe super qui m’a aidé à apprendre le français rapidement. J’ai également eu beaucoup de chance avec mon hébergement. L’AEPP (ndlr : résidence étudiante à Paris) regorge de jeunes très conviviaux. Je me suis liée d’amitié avec de nombreuses personnes. Cohabiter avec autant de personnes de nationalités différentes était une expérience unique à vivre. Ma vie à Paris me manque beaucoup. Merci de tout mon coeur pour votre aide et soutien !”

Paris, the “City of Lights” is my favourite city and that’s what inspired me to apply to the “Work in France” program. My expectation were to see the Eiffel Tower and Monalisa, to improve my French and my English, to meet new people and to get new work experience.
I experienced lot of things that can’t be bought with money. In total, I worked four times with a stay of three months each time. I worked six months on the Place de la Bastille in a big restaurant, full of tourists. I’ve worked another six months in a prestigious hotel at the center of Paris. Few minutes from the hotel there are many museums, such as the Louvre Museum. I lived at the dorm which was very well located, with a lot of space, a learning room…
I’m very happy and satisfied with the agency of Belgrade and the agency of Paris. Milana and Laura were available at any moment and answer any question. I met so many kind and friendly people.
Earning money wasn’t my goal and I got a real life experience.
