Hi all,

After I have finished Sixth Form (July 2005), I'd like to take a gap year and go to Germany to do a work experience for a little while. Maybe 5 or 6 months or so. I wanna do this so that I can improve my German and hopefully become more fluent. I have been studying it for about 4 and a half years now.

Does anybody know of companies that takes on work experience students from abroad? Does anybody know of companies that can arrange work experience and a place to live?

I would really appreciate anybody help!!

The most obvious thing would probably be applying with a British company operating in Germany.
I doubt, however, you will make enough to afford a place to live by simply doing a work experience. If you are lucky you might make something between 300 and 600? a month, barely enough to survive.
If you just want to polish up your German, try to contact backpackers or youth hostels, they always need English speakers, and you will be able to practice your German.
If you were a girl I could also suggest coming over as an au pair! But apparently guys do this too nowadays...
If you want more advice you would indeed need to say what field you would like to work in, as Jan said.
Btw, great your thinking of coming to Germany!  Big thumbs up

Yours truly - StarFlyer

Thanks for your replies and help so far!

I think money will be an issue. I will try to find out a little more about that.

Well, I suppose my skills are mainly anything to do with Business Studies or a little bit of Accounting. I am being extremely general here I know. Sorry about that. I have worked in Retail for the past year, so I also suppose work related to Retail.

StarFlyer, yeah I really like coming to Germany. I enjoy it every time. Probably because it's different and I am able to understand a little of what people are talking about if they talk to me or whatever. It's kinda fun.
