    I'm currently living in Spain, as I have been for most of my life. I'm originally british but don't know much about life in the UK. Soo when I finish school here (not sure if it would be equivalent to GCSE'S, im working on it) I'm looking into moving to England next year, possibly around the Leeds area, if I get into the college I want.:confused:
    I'd like to make some friends before I actually go there so I'm not completely alone, I need advice and a helping hand!

    Advice on what kind of things? If you go to a college, you will almost definitely make new friends and meet new people, so I wouldn't be worrying about that at this stage

    Well, I wouldn't know much about the differences between English and Spanish cultures, but I think you'll settle in pretty quickly. In some ways it's good you have a couple of months to yourself at the start - I'd take the time to go exploring, go on a few day-trips to different cities, get a feel for where you're living. Enjoy it!
