Pre-departure: what you need to know

Posted on 28 November 2017 by Kimberly Field

Bonjour everyone! Today’s blog topic is about all the things you need to know before going away abroad. It’s all good and well me telling you about all the things I’ve been doing so far, but for people planning on working or studying abroad, one of the most important things to know is how to

Bois de Boulogne: Ladies of the Day!

Posted on 13 October 2017 by Natasha Holmes

Call me naïve, a country bumpkin. Call me what you will. But until today, prostitution was an almost abstract idea. A practice confined to BBC Three documentaries, the windows of Amsterdam and 19th century French literature. One is never really exposed to much of the sex industry in the sleepy border villages of home. When

The End

Posted on 28 July 2017 by Chloe Walker

Sitting here surrounded by my suitcases is a surreal feeling. After about ten months of living and studying abroad, the time has come to go home and to get back to reality. I have been very slack with writing posts during my time in Germany. However, this is indicative of the amazing time I have

LingoMap:Career plans, skills and employment

Posted on 3 July 2017 by Sarah Gregory

My final LingoMap blog! As an undergraduate, it can be scary to think about leaving the student days behind. Student life is great, it has given me a huge amount of freedom, independence and courage, without which I would not have been able to fly the nest and live abroad! The saying goes however, that

LingoMap: School and College life

Posted on 3 July 2017 by Sarah Gregory

Finally I am back with another LingoMap blog! I hope you have enjoyed reading about my year abroad journey so far! For this blog I am focusing on school and college life in Spain. The first thing I will say about school life in Spain is that it is extremely different to school life in

LingoMap: My career prospects

Posted on 30 June 2017 by Emily Seaborne

Quelle horreur! I can’t believe that my Year Abroad is over! It has flown by so fast and I have learnt so much in the 7 months I have spent living in the South of France. Not only have I vastly improved my language skills but also my knowledge and awareness of French culture. Although

Lingo Map: Careers and Employability

Posted on 27 June 2017 by Molly Timmons

It’s official. My year abroad is (pretty much) officially over. I’ve had the most amazing year of my life and now it’s time to get back to the normality (and scary prospect of final year) in Britain. I was in the UK for just under two weeks after getting back from Portugal, and now I’m

Lingomap: Erasmus over…What next?

Posted on 25 June 2017 by Melissa Tavares

Hola a todos! Wow, so we’ve come to my last blog! My year abroad is over and I could not be sadder, I have had such great time both in Toulouse and Granada, I have gained amazing friends (whom I cannot wait to visit already), I’ve seen amazing places and have had an incredible experience

So, what’s next?

Posted on 22 June 2017 by Liam Barrett

And we’re done! As of 2nd June 2017, I have finished my year abroad. Having first left for Belgium on 25th August 2017, I have spent a little over nine months and two weeks living abroad. Undoubtedly, the Year abroad is a worthwhile experience, regardless of where you do it, you will see places you

Reflections at the end of my Erasmus

Posted on 18 June 2017 by Simona Dundova

So many things happened in the last couple of months that I haven’t had the time to write about each and every experience. That is why I am using this opportunity to summarise some of them and share my feelings less than two weeks before I leave Valencia. Spending the whole academic year as an

What next?..

Posted on 7 June 2017 by Harriet Codd

Well, well, well. We have reached our final post in the LingoMap program. I hope you have all enjoyed these blogs and can at least take something away from each of them! Now that us university students have come to the end of our blessed Year Abroad (how time flies!), it’s now back to reality and

LingoMap: Social Issues

Posted on 30 May 2017 by Emily Seaborne

Hey everyone, The topic of this months blog is Social Issues so I thought I would write on immigration and integration in France. Immigration is a big issue in France and particularly in Grasse, the town where I have been working this year. My job as a language assistant has been especially insightful as one

Cuestiones sociales – El paro en España

Posted on 17 May 2017 by Liam Barrett

In this month’s blog, I am going to talk about some of the social issues which have to be faced in the country in which I am currently living, so that would be Spain. Firstly, a (una cuestión social) social issue is a (un problema) problem that influences a considerable number of the individuals within a society. Now

Lingomap: El sistema educativo español

Posted on 15 May 2017 by Melissa Tavares

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. Funnily enough 5 years ago today, I left school, it feels way longer than that, to be honest, and although they say your school days are the best days of your life…It’s

LingoMap: What is German University like?

Posted on 11 May 2017 by Chloe Walker

Attending university in your home country is scary enough at times, but going to university in another country, where the language is different, is a whole new ball game. I would like to begin by saying, however, that the language isn’t usually the biggest difference that you may find while attending university in Germany. I would

¡La vida escolar en España!

Posted on 8 May 2017 by Harriet Codd

Hello again to you all, I hope the year is treating you well! When thinking about school/college life for this blog, I found it relatively difficult to put everything into one concise answer for you. To be totally honest, university life where I am based is far from what I expected it to be – both

House Hunting, Holidays and Heidelberg

Posted on 22 April 2017 by Chloe Walker

It has now been around 7 weeks since I arrived in Heidelberg and this is my first post. A lot has happened. This could be a long one. March was spent in a daze of househunting alleviated by a month-long German course. The course was fabulous. It was a great way to refresh my German knowledge

Cheap Dreams

Posted on 10 April 2017 by Llewelyn

Wow, it’s been a really long time since I wrote an entry here, so I guess I should start by quickly reviewing the last month or so…basically I’ve been pretty busy at work, especially as the high season is starting to roll around, meaning that we’ve had more and more bookings to deal with.  That,

LingoMap: Is Germany environmentally friendly?

Posted on 3 April 2017 by Chloe Walker

I have been in Germany for just over a month now, specifically in the city of Heidelberg. Heidelberg is in the South West of Germany in the state called Baden-Württemburg. It is close to Frankfurt and Stuttgart, which are two major cities in Germany. I have been here to complete a pre-semester language course in

Lingo Map: School/College Life

Posted on 31 March 2017 by Kate Pritchard

Bonjour à tous ! This month I have been given the title of School/College Life. Despite France not being hugely different to the UK, there are a few significant differences in the way in which their schools function. Pas d’uniformes! First of all, (and this is always the first thing to come to mind), children in

LingoMap: Environment

Posted on 27 March 2017 by Simona Dundova

In stead of talking only about environmental issues and how people in Spain treat them, in this blog post I have decided to demonstrate the relationship between this topic and the one about festivals and celebrations discussed previously. As I mentioned before, one of the biggest and most spectacular festivals in Spain is called Las

Fallas Time

Posted on 20 March 2017 by Simona Dundova

I still find it hard to believe that I have witnessed one of the biggest and most impressive festivals in Spain. Las Fallas de Valencia take place in the period 15th-19th March each year and this is a celebration you don’t want to miss. The preparations start very early on and during the official days

Posted on 9 March 2017 by Melissa Tavares

Hola everyone! Hope you’re all doing well, how is it march already? Is it me or does time fly when you’re abroad? This month I thought I’d tell you all about how Granada treats its environment. But, firstly as it’s my first blog on Granada, I thought I’d tell you a little bit about my

Hello everyone again! Happy March! I’m very happy to say Easter is coming (relatively) soon and that I’ve booked my flights home for that week. Although, really we both know it’s to go home and collect a dozen chocolate eggs and then come back to Spain… Sorry to bring up Easter so soon but we’re

So now that I’m coming to the end of my first month of work here in Marseille, I thought I’d take a minute to share some of my experiences and basically describe what an average working day looks like for me at the hostel.  In a normal week, I tend to spend around 30 hours

LingoMap: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Posted on 13 February 2017 by Chloe Walker

On first thought, the idea of flying alone in a plane to a foreign land is intimidating and scary. However, in reality, it can be incredibly exciting and liberating. Luckily, before my journey to Valencia to begin my year abroad, I had already flown solo. Although I’m not the best flyer, I do find that some good

LingoMap: In The Land of Festivals

Posted on 13 February 2017 by Simona Dundova

Spain is in no doubt the country of festivals, parties and celebrations and the people here definitely know how to have fun! That is why I find it hard to summarise my knowledge on this topic and the great experiences I have had in one single blog post. However, I will do my best to

Starting Life in Marseille

Posted on 31 January 2017 by Llewelyn

So I haven’t really had anything to write about on this blog for about a month now, as I was home over Christmas and assumed that my Christmas Day eating and sleeping habits (50:50 ratio if you’re interested) weren’t what this blog was meant to be used for.  However, I’m now back on the mainland

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you’ve all had a lovely break and that the new term is going well.  As for me, I’ve just moved to Granada (literally three days ago) so I’m adapting to another beautiful culture and my brain keeps mixing both languages, I keep saying “Pardon” instead of “Perdona”!

LingoMap: Health and Fitness in Valencia

Posted on 17 January 2017 by Chloe Walker

The topic of health and fitness is not something I can say plays a major role in my life. However whilst studying abroad you begin to notice lots of differences between your new country and your home country. Of course, I have an interest in leading a healthy lifestyle. This is also the case for

Valencia – The Perfect Place to Get Fit

Posted on 26 December 2016 by Simona Dundova

Sports activities are an important part of Spanish lifestyle. The climate makes it possible to practice anything from ice-skating, football to beach volley and surfing. We all know that food and celebrations are the essence of Mediterranean culture. However, when you come to Spain (or any other country in Southern Europe for that matter), you

Alicante was my weekend get-away for last week. My flatmate, two other Italian friends and I caught the 9 am bus on Saturday morning and arrived at our destination in just over two hours. As it was raining, we entered one of the first bakeries we saw and we talked over a cup of coffee

As I’m coming towards the last few weeks of my stay in Barcelona, I thought I’d take this opportunity to reflect on a few things I’ve learnt whilst living here for the past few months.  Hopefully, these will inspire you to visit the city if you ever have the opportunity or just give you an

This week has been quite a busy one, involving various excursions and other lovely days with friends. So on Tuesday, we held our first dinner party at the flat. I use the term ‘we’ very loosely, considering it was really Orla and Sarah who did the cooking. Sarah is staying with us for a while

Sun, Sea and Schedules

Posted on 19 September 2016 by Chloe Walker

I’m currently coming to the end of my first two weeks of work here in Barcelona, so I thought it’d be a good time to share how it’s all been going so far. I’m working in a private language school, not far from the Sagrada Familia, which is really great, because it means there’s just

Adapting to life in Nantes

Posted on 10 September 2016 by Susannah Hadden

I moved to Nantes a little over a week ago now and it’s slowly starting to feel more like home, a foreign, temporary home, but home all the same. Without wishing to jinx it, I think I’ve pretty much overcome the homesickness that got me down when I arrived, and so I can really start
