Making friends on your year abroad – whilst maintaining social distancing! One of the most nerve-wracking thoughts before your year abroad is making new friends… in a new language!

Hola a todos!! Hope you’re all doing well! I’m loving life in very sunny Granada! This month’s topic is school and college studies.
