Organise the trip yourself

2/10

Twin group provides no service that you could not do yourself for a much cheaper price.
By all means go to Montpellier and take the course, but cut out the middle man. They charge more than the school for classes and a homestay arrangement and will not hesitate to tell you that it's your fault when they've provided you with misleading information. They will calmly place you in a homestay 2 hours away from Montpellier and repeatedly tell you that it's less than 1 hour away. They have little desire to know whether you're satisfied with the program and will make no effort to follow up with you after you've paid your money.

Great Experience!

7/10

Hi, my name is Alessandro and I come from Italy.
I did an internship via Twin that helped me to growth. I spent 16 weeks in an international distribution company in London dedicated to the worldwide sales of documentaries. Twin helped me to find this internship and to pass the inevitable interview.
This experience gave me the necessary basis to enter in the working world and improved my English.

Internship in a Human Resources in a British company.

8/10

I made an internship of 6 weeks in a London-based company.
My work consisted in booking interpreting sessions for patients who do not speak English in Great British hospitals.
At the beginning, it was a bit hard to communicate in English with people over the phone but I got used to it bit by bit. At the stage of 3-4 weeks I was familiarised with the language and I could talk easily with others.
Going abroad is the best way to learn more about both English corporate and social culture.
I strongly spur students who like English culture to go abroad to discover more, and improve their language level.

How can this program be improved?

If I had one thing to change concerning this internship would be the accomodation.
My family was not very nice because of money and health issues of my host person.
Furthermore, my room was not very wide and I did not have enough space to move into it.
The rest of this experience was great.

Response from Twin Work & Volunteer

Thank you very much for your honest review. We at TWIN Work & Volunteer are really glad that over all you enjoyed your experience in London. We are also extremely grateful for your productive criticism.
We always try to make sure our host families are fully vetted, so our participants are well taken care of and safe. However, we will do our best to improve that in the future.

A reAlly great experience!

9/10

I volunteered in Nepal for almost 3 months teaching English and doing women's empowerment! What an amazing experience and great way to give back to an awesome travel experience! Twin helped and supported me from the beginning and my Nepali volunteer house was everything I needed for an impactful experience!
