PARTICIPANTS’ OPINIONS

Aleksandra Frydel:

‘I like my job, I have a lot of tasks and usually they are varied. I have a nice tutor, with whom I get on well. At work, I speak English and Spanish with customers or on the phone, so I am learning new Spanish words. With my tutor I am communicating in English and Spanish. I was really keen on the bicycle trip we did around Seville as well as the other entertaining activities euroMind had planned for us.’

Mateusz Kubisz:

The atmosphere in the euroMind office is really good. Everyone in here is helpful and always smiling. I have good working conditions at the office, my own desk and laptop. At first I prepared an article about Acceptus which was quite useful because I have gained a lot of knowledge about the company. I am really satisfied with the cooperation with my tutor.’
