Not sure if this is in the right place, but I'd appreciate any insight that you guys might have on how I should plan my year abroad.
I'm going into 2nd year next year studying French & Spanish, and we have to submit applications by the end of first term so I'm starting to think about what I want to do, especially because doing two languages is making it more tricky.
I have studied French since I was 11 and Spanish since 14, so I'm a bit better at French. I want to go on to teach (in England) after my degree and have my heart set on doing a teaching assistantship in my third year. However, that makes things difficult because they're from October - April/May.
I was just wondering if anyone can shed some light on the situation - should I do the assistantship in France or Spain (based on the strength of my language) and should I go to the second country after the assistantship (May/June - September) or should I consider going in the summer before too to make sure I get even amounts of experience?
Have you done any of these?
