Testimonial 1

"I felt incredibly comfortable and welcome during the whole term. The staff were super helpful, and I grew very fond of the students during my internship. I learned a lot during the two months, and I can recommend an internship at DSM to anyone".

Testimonial 2

'I had a fantastic time during my internship at DSM. All interns felt well taken care of and enjoyed working in this open and friendly atmosphere. It was a special experience for me supporting the students, being part of their bilingual learning journey and to also develop myself as aspiring teacher. Time flies when you are having a great time.'

'The internship at DSM offers me a great opportunity to get to know the daily routine of a bilingual primary school. You get so many opportunities to teach classes by yourself or to actively contribute to organising school trips or projects. The atmosphere at the school is very warm and welcoming, and it is a pleasure working with the teachers - you get the feeling you are an important part of the school life. And of course you really become fond of the children.'
