Corlaine Vendrig (Netherlands)
I arranged my internship and accommodation through 4exchange. I worked with clients in the streets of Cape Town which can be pretty intense at certain times. Despite that, I have learned a lot from it and I will definitely miss my clients. I lived with 30 people on two floors. This is something you should be aware of because you will always have to adjust a little. The advantage is that there is always someone home to chat with or to do something fun with, this house has really become my family here. It is nice to be able to share your story with your roommates. Certainly with an internship like mine and in an accommodation like this there is always plenty of distraction! I have always had good contact with 4exchange, prior to my visa I always received a quick response to my emails. Once in Cape Town their office was next to our accommodation so I could always walk in for any questions!
