    I study German and ab initio Spanish. My uni recommends that if you start a language from scratch, you spend the whole year in that country. However, I am quite worried about not spending enough time in Germany, as it may become quite hard to spend the second summer there after we leave the EU. I think I want to study, so it should be easy enough to split. What does everyone think? I'd be particularly interested to hear from people who have done a year abroad and split or not. Thanks!

    Spending your entire year in Spain does make sense if it is your weaker language, but I think it would be a mistake to not spend any time in Germany at all. I suggest you do a summer school (or winter school) in Germany, lots of German universities offer them. If you spend the summer in Germany before and after your year abroad then you shouldn't lose out too much on German practice.
