Personal history with South Africa and France

I got my Master II of International Security, Defense and Economic Intelligence one year ago. Then, I decided to fill my gaps in English by enrolling in a language school. Several destinations were offered and I chose South Africa. Native of Guinea (West Africa) I arrived in France at the age of 3. So for me, South Africa symbolized a return to roots. I arrived in January 2013 in Cape Town just for 5 months. Falling in love with this city I děcided to extend my stay and find a job in the field of international relations, defense industry or geopolitical analysis

Current company

  • Hi Lara,

    I plan to do the same as you. I m in touch with ef school to have a two weeks study here in CT. I have already made a language trip with EF 7 years ago in Dublin. Are you in a family host or at the residence ? What is your advice comparing other students ? Considering, I only stay two weeks in this school, I would prefer a host family. 

    What is the general level in this school ? Did you pass an exam ?

    What are you currently doing ? Working visiting chilling ?

    Thank you,
