Marta

Hi everyone! I’m Marta, one of the new students of IH Cape Town and I’m also a new intern of the school.

I come from Italy and I live in a small and nice town, called Brivio, in the north of Italy. My town is surrounded by the mountains, is crossed by a river and it’s also near big cities like Milan, Como and Lecco.

I’m 19 years old and last year I graduated high school specializing in languages. I studied English, German and Spanish. Then I decided to take a gap year because I wanted to have  a new experience and spend some time abroad. When I got the possibility to come here to  Cape Town I just accepted because I’ve always wanted to visit South Africa (my father came here some years ago and he always tells me that was the best trip he’s ever had), and it was also a good chance to improve my English.

In the morning I attend English classes and in the afternoon I work here at the school. Actually I don’t have experience in the field, but for me is an opportunity to learn something new and stay with other young people from all over the world.

I’m only here for a few days but I am sure it will be one of the most beautiful experiences of my life!
