Which country would be best to study in, France or Germany?

1 answers

I suppose I've got quite a vague question. I'm currently trying to think of ideas on how to spend my year abroad. I study French and beginners' German and I've decided that I'd like to spend a semester studying at a university in either France or Germany, and spend the rest of the year working in the country I haven't yet visited. However I'm not sure which country would be best to study in. Of course I've only been learning German for a year, so I'd like to spend the German part of my year abroad really improving my language ability. So would it be more beneficial for a beginner to study in a country where the language they're learning is spoken, or work in it? Would studying at a university give more exposure to the language and immerse you in it more than working? Also if anyone has any experience of studying in either France or Germany it'd be great to hear your experience :)

Which Italian cities are best for students?

2 answers

I am studying Italian and can't wait to go to Italy on my year abroad! However, I know that Italy is a popular tourist spot and I don't want to end up somewhere that is overcrowded with English speakers. For that reason, is it a mistake to go somewhere like Venice, Rome or Florence? And, if so, where else would you recommend? I would prefer to be in a city or a large town, where there is plenty to do for young people, but I don't want to sacrifice learning about genuine Italian culture.

Has anybody had experience of applying for the Travel Grant with Student Finance?

4 answers

Student Finance supposedly offer a Travel Grant which can pay for three return flights, important medical insurance and visa costs-minus the first £330. Does anybody have any experience of applying for it? Is it easy to get? Do they pay it quickly? is the £330 only for flights or does it include medical insurance, too?

Can my year abroad relationship survive my return to the UK?

5 answers

I met my boyfriend during my year abroad in France and have just moved home to the UK. We've agreed to try and make it work but is this completely unrealistic? He doesn't speak any English so I'm worried he won't be able to fit in with my old life and we'll drift apart. Has anyone experienced this?

Can you inspire me to keep my German going so I can become a Lawyer-Linguist in future?

2 answers

I'm in Year 10 and I need some inspiration/motivation to do something with my life, I've always wanted to be a Lawyer - possibly a Lawyer-Linguist - and no one has ever listened to my dream and said, "yes James, I believe you can do that", usually it's "you wouldn't make a good lawyer" etc. So please can you inspire me and motivate me to try hard in my German lessons particularly but all lessons so I can achieve my dream?

When (if ever) do you give up and go home?

3 answers

I'm on my year abroad and I've been struggling with my mental health pretty much since day 1 back in September. I'm a language assistant and really not enjoying it, and the school isn't helping me at all. I've tried throwing myself into things, getting outside, keeping myself busy etc but nothing seems to be working and I don't know what to do. The thought of staying here until June is pretty unbearable at the moment but I also don't want to sacrifice my degree and feel like I'm giving up by going home. It was hard to come back after Christmas and I'm worried if I go home again I won't come back. What should I do?
