Work Experience at Omaha Beach Club, Normandy

02 Oct 2012

Over the summer 2012, thanks to my French teacher’s contacts in Normandy, I was able to secure two months’ worth of work at Omaha Beach Golf Club in Port-en-Bessin, Normandy, in France.

The weather was rather similar to that of London’s at the time, but the summer sun during the day was generous enough to allow for a few games of golf as a guest during downtime. I worked at the reception desk in the golf store, where clothes and golf equipment was sold, regularly taking calls from customers to book slots on the two 18-holed courses, or simply asking for general information.

I stayed in the golf house on the resort, along with some of the other employees there at the time.

As the work was for two months, my knowledge of the language from French A-Level grew to a more comfortable, fluid conversational competence. I’m both pleased and surprised at the progress I’ve had, and would definitely love to go again, for more work. The people I worked with at Omaha Beach were very warm and understanding, and over the course of my stay, we all became friends, to the extent that I am still in touch with them now. It was truly instrumental in my language development, and would love to go there again in the near future for similar work.
