Our Intern Alexandra, started her internship at CISL San Francisco yesterday. Please see her blog entry below.


My name is Alexandra. I’m 21 years old and I’m from Vienna, Austria. Right now I’m studying Journalism and Communication at the University of Vienna.

I came to San Francisco about one and a half months ago and all in all I’m staying three months. In Europe it is very important to know many languages and the first thing a company would ask you in an interview: “Can you speak English?”. So English is very significant for me and that is the reason why I have choosen to go to school and have an internship in San Francisco.

Why San Francisco? The city is known for its hills, the Golden Gate Bridge or the fascinating Jail Alcatraz. I’ve seen so many movies playing in San Francisco that I just wanted to be a part of it.

I attended Converse International Language School which was a really good choice because it manages to combine a high disciplinary study level, with a bright and friendly environment including making new friends from all over the world. The teachers are so friendly and you can really feel that they want to help you improving your English knowledge.The school also helped me find an internship to reach my goal, which is able to speak fluent English.

I hope you are getting interested in this beautiful city and want to come here.

All the best,
