Seven Romanian high school students spent two weeks at Vatel, where they shared the daily lives of the students.
A very rewarding cross-cultural experience both for them as well as for Vatel students, who are already used to multiculturalism.
During these two weeks of courses at school and in the Vatel Hotel & Spa, which is where Nimes’ students have their hands-on experience,
- Daniela, Adrian and Eugen discovered the hustle and bustle of the kitchens,
- Dumitru and Cristina were initiated to the many facets of the accommodations department,
- And Monica and Denisa, experienced the hierarchy involved in the many jobs in restaurant services.
Liana Coroianu, the French teacher at Constantin Brancusi High School, said she was delighted: “I’m so happy that seven of our high school students were able to discover not only the different departments hotels have, but also the unique educational concept of a French school of higher education specialized in Hospitality and Tourism Management.
An international professional experience, an introduction to the ‘French art of hospitality’; my seven high school students have gone back to Romania with great professional projects in mind!”
