    Thanks. I had a phone call from them to say one of my e-mails bounced, but they haven't re-sent it so I wasn't sure if I was missing some info.

    What's your route into the PGCE been like? 😊

    Yeah they said they were having trouble with emails.
    I finished uni last year and this year I lived in Italy teaching English. I literally arrived back a few days ago so now trying to re-adjust to English life. And remembering which way to look before I cross the road haha.

    So you are living in accommodation, do you live far from Oxford?

    That sounds fab! I got offered a job doing the same in Italy while I was working at a language school this summer and I was tempted!

    Yeah, Leicestershire is home and I went to Uni at Leicester as well so I want a change. What about you?

    Italy is pretty high on my list of places to visit. Yeah me too, I spent a couple of days in Oxford over the summer with work and it definitely trumps Leicester, which is pretty grim.

    I can't find the Facebook group, but I think I have found and added you (at least there is only one Coleen Broderick), if you don't mind.
