Where will you be in one year?

As the programme comes to an end across Europe, all of the Language Assistants are looking to the future. Most are returning to their university courses to finish studying while others, like me, are now looking for new work or are celebrating another placement abroad.

One thing we can all agree on, however, is that a lot can change in one year and our adventure is coming to a close. Good things will have happened and bad things will have happened too. We will all leave with so many memories of unforgettable experiences.

For me, this year has felt like a roller-coaster. From meeting amazing people in Mallorca to losing amazing people back home. From having the opportunity to live independently on a Mediterranean island to being thousands of miles from my family and friends.

The real countdown has begun and my flight is booked for the last day in June. It really has left me torn because there are two sides to a coin: I am very excited to return home but don't really want this incredible journey to end.

I hope I can find another job soon and hopefully abroad. I would love to keep writing like this about my adventures abroad in a blog. This website really has helped me return to love writing stories in private and to pick up my pen again. I can't wait for me next adventure. Hopefully all of you are excited too!

In one year I hope to be working in a job I love abroad and writing a blog about my adventures there. I also hope that I will be able to return to the UK for a while. I am missing my family and my amazingly supportive girlfriend. Off on another adventure!

For me, Spain is the perfect country to be happy in. I have lived here twice, visited dozens of times, and every time I am here I fall in love with the country again. From Extremadura to Cataluña and Asturias to Andalucía I love Spain. I like it so much that I studied Spanish and Portuguese at university just so that I could come back.

Hopefully in one year you will be happy in Spain or maybe on a different amazing adventure.

I will still be in the same country, working and at the same time studying BUT with a new course! This time, the course that I really want.

Best wishes, JohnR. Good luck on your new journey!

A year has passed since then; yes, I'm still staying here. Nothing seems to have changed as to where I stay, but what does seem sure is that I've grown up a little since then!!
How's that for!✨

I won't forget you. It has been an amazing adventure and thank you for reading everything. At the minute I am looking for any kind of work. I really would like to get a job representing a company abroad. I am going to try to keep writing and will be starting a blog online. I also started an Instagram account of all things. I feel old for not knowing what I am doing with it :D

Thanks Jo,

It has been great fun. I still have one month in Mallorca before I leave completely but have enjoyed every minute of it. It has been challenging, with a mixture of tears and smiles, and a wonderful time.
