Attention all language students who have studied or worked abroad !!! We all know that languages degrees are fabulous. Especially the Year Abroad. So, in order to encourage others to follow in our footsteps, and to take the opportunity to study and work abroad, The Euros is embarking upon a new adventure, called Year Abroad Experiences. We are looking for people to write for us about their experiences living in other European countries.
How did you find being surrounded by a different language ? No matter how long you have been studying, suddenly having to use a foreign language on a daily basis is very difficult. Were they any embarrassing mistakes you laughed about later ? (Come on, it happened to us all !!) Was there anything that surprised you about the culture, or the people ? What did you miss most about home ? What did you wish you could take home with you ? Do you feel that your time abroad changed you, or your perspective on life in any way ?
So whether you studied at a foreign university, either as part of the Erasmus programme or independently, you worked as a language assistant, you attended a language school, you had a job......we want to hear from you !!! As little or as much as you like. Let’s spread the word about just how challenging, exciting, rewarding and life-changing a year abroad can be !
If you are interested in participating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or post a message on The Euros Facebook page ! Looking forward to hearing from you !
