Bogdan – From Bucharest to Derry
A story by: Dan-Bogdan Dîlgoci
Country of origin: Romania
Destination: Northern Ireland
Type of mobility: Professional
While staying abroad, I have not visited the city like other students; instead I have enjoyed visiting the attractions, like the museums, bars and clubs. I have also done different things like paintballing, going to the cinema to watch English films and sightseeing.
I really enjoyed my work placement, the main thing I liked about it were the people as they were friendly and sociable. I had many tasks to do while at my work placement. This gave me experience for the future like making questionnaires, designing and making business cards, researching, attending workshops and events. I definitely recommend this experience to anybody as it is a great way to not only improve your English but also meet lots of new people.
I think N.Ireland is a great place with lots of friendly people, and I would recommend it to new students. My advice is to be careful but be friendly at your work placement as it is a great experience. I am already making plans to return to N.Ireland as I had such a great time during my stay!
