  • Tim Blore is studying Modern Languages at Durham University. He spent the first semester of his year abroad as an Erasmus student in Tübingen, Germany, and is currently working as an English language instructor for children in Paris. Here he discusses loneliness, and ways to make friends on your year abroad.

  • I study French and Italian at St Anne’s College, Oxford. I began learning Italian ab initio when I started in 2012, and as result of being so far behind with Italian in comparison, I really worked hard to improve my Italian by studying at language courses in Florence and spending a summer working as an au-pair. As a consequence, my French then fell behind, and I really wasn’t comfortable with grammar or speaking. I have thus chosen to spend the majority of my year Abroad in France, and just the two summers either side in Italy. I had already had a fair bit of experience working at primary schools in England as a volunteer and so decided that I wanted to use my year abroad as a chance to gain a different type of work experience.

  • For my year abroad, I secured a work placement in a school where I translated, taught, and did a lot of admin. French admin is very much like English admin, except there’s a whole lot more of it. However, as my time here draws to a close, I thought I’d share a few things I’ve learnt that I wish I’d known before I left.
