  11. 11. My Work Role – Recruitment Consultant Location - Paris Company - Swift World Wide Resources Swift WWR Is a recruitment agency specialising in the oil and gas industry, we find engineers and managers to work on oil rigs and other oil and gas platforms all over the world.
  12. 12. Benefits of being able to speak French 0 You will be able to communicate with around 340 million more people than your average English speaker. 0 Your understanding of grammar and vocabulary is massively improved. 0 In a French working environment you will be the best English speaker. 0 It opens you up to opportunities abroad, even at A-Level standard. 0 There is nothing that you can learn at university about speaking French that you cannot learn at A-Level if you take advantage of the opportunity.
  13. 13. How French Has Helped Me 0 Graduated from St Mary’s Sixth Form with a B in French and went on to study at the University of Sheffield. 0 Spent a year as a student in the south of France. 0 Went on to work in customer service at NS&I (boring) 0 Did a Marketing internship with a local Fylde company. 0 Moved to Swift WWR UK last year in March, then to Swift Paris in June.
  14. 14. My Tips 0 Learn the irregular verbs as quickly as you can. 0 Practise listening, use youtube, watch films that you know well in French. 0 Speaking- use music to improve your pronunciation, it helps with accent, rhythm and breathing. It also helps with listening, I strongly recommend Emily Loizeau for this purpose. 0 If you want to say something learn how to say it! Use all the tools you can to find out how to say what you want to say, it makes learning far more fun if you express your own opinions in your work!
