  • Valencia

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010

    City of Festivals and Celebrations
    Imagine for a moment whizzing scooters down orange tree-lined streets, the sound of chatter, laughs and singing from bars and cafes, the beating sun shining off the sparkling clear waters of the Mediterranean and the relaxing sensation as the pads of your feet sink into soft white sand... does it sound too good to be true? Well think again; this is Valencia.

  • Madrid

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010
    City of Modern Living
    Slap bang at the heart of the Iberian Peninsula is the very vibrant and bustling city, Madrid. Since 1563, this mesmerising metropolis has been Spain's capital and quite rightly so, being the epicentre for parties, panache and progressive political movements (the 80s la movida punk movement gave birth to artists such as Almodóvar, amongst many others).
  • Barcelona

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010
    City of Artists
    To the north of the Spanish coastline, we find the bright and breezy Barcelona. Don't forget your Catalan dictionary however, as this coastal city is officially bilingual — Catalan sounding similar to a mixture of French and Spanish, and being spoken by all the locals. This makes for a forever progressive and innovative place to be, as it is a city that aches with character and boasts an undeniably rich history.
  • UK

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010

    Where to start? With such a small country packed with so many eccentricities? Tea, biscuits, pickle, the Queen, castles, Mr Bean, glorious countryside, Mini Coopers, cider, traditional pubs, old townhouses, Carnaby Street... this island flung on the northern side of Europe has a lot to answer for in terms of popular culture, habits and customs.

  • Work Abroad

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010
    Deciding to work abroad has many benefits, besides filling in a few more lines on your CV. You can gain international work experience, develop your language skills, learn new techniques and methods of working and (hopefully) get paid in the process. For some, the transition from studying into the world of work doesn't represent much of a challenge, whilst others may find it just that little bit more difficult; with either scenario, you need to go informed, prepared and ready to make the most of your new job, which is why we've created this section of the site.
  • Salamanca

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010
    City of Students
    To the west of Spain about 200km from Madrid, is the charming renaissance town of Salamanca. Otherwise known as La Ciudad Dorada, a name garnered thanks to the distinctive illuminating glow that emits from its sandstone buildings.
  • Salzburg

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010
    City of Musical Glitterati
    Nestling on the border of Germany, to the West of the country, Salzburg offers more than just the backdrop for The Sound of Music. Birthplace to none other than the king of (classical) pop, Mozart, the city is beaming with baroque buildings, exterior wooden beams, and traditional shops (think chocolates, mini liqueurs and a lot of cute decorum). You'll be taken by the urge to sip on a thick hot chocolate, after a little escapade in the surrounding mountains. For the historians out there amongst you, take a tour around the impressive Hohensalzburg medieval castle, a grand fortress that highlights just one of Austria's many UNESCO world heritage sites.
  • Not a linguist?

    Wednesday, 12 May 2010
    Thinking about spending some time away, even though you're not studying a language degree? You don't have to be halfway through your language course to step foot into foreign universities, work abroad or volunteer for a few months. Thousands of students set off each year to become more culturally aware, learn the lingo or just to try something different. Have a look at our Been There Done That section, foreign blogs, planning and preparation info and much more...Who said it was just for linguists anyway?
