  • Louise is studying French at the University of Glasgow and is currently a British Council Language Assistant in Tarnos in the South West of France, and her boyfriend is living there with her! She says "many of our fears were completely unfounded and I would love to write a post for those considering moving to the country of their year abroad together, to dispel some fears and offer some advice for the inevitable challenges that do come up. Sometimes it can just be reassuring to know someone has done it too!"

  • Living abroad? Feel like you should therefore be having the time of your life? But instead find yourself mentally and physically anchored to your room? (so much so you feel part of the furniture). This is quite ‘normal’, and yet we still associate not having ‘the time of your life’ abroad as ‘abnormal’ or rather; failure. What should be brought to light, is the fact that one in four UK citizens will have suffered from a mental health problem each year [ 2016]. This statistic really does bring home the phenomenal scale of just how many people are affected by mental health issues, for example, anxiety or depression. So although you may feel anxious, lonely, or depressed; you are certainly not alone.
