Two Manchester hotels are helping students to boost their English language skills by offering internships with their respective teams.
Students attending the EF Language School in the city are being offered the chance to practice their English in a real-world business environment via the business internships at Holiday Inn Manchester West and Holiday Inn Express Manchester Airport.
The internships are open to students who have been studying English as their second, third, or even fourth language and wish to immerse themselves in an environment where language skills and communication are vital.
With a minimum duration of six weeks, the internships are available in the Sales and Marketing, Food and Beverage and Accounts teams at the hotels.
The scheme has proved so successful that the hotels have decided to welcome an additional two interns from the EF School over the course of the next two months.
Leanne Harrad, Cluster Sales Manager for Holiday Inn Express Manchester Airport and Holiday Inn Manchester West said: “Being able to offer students from the EF Language School the chance to sharpen their language skills has been great for both the interns and the hotels.
“The students get to hone their language skills in a communications-focused environment, while the hotels benefit from the help of driven, hard-working young people.
“We are keen to continue this mutually beneficial arrangement and forge even stronger links with the EF Language School.”
