British Council language assistants - transfers/quitting early Watch
Basically to cut a long story short I'm working as a BC language assistant in the south of Spain in a small town which I'm not really enjoying that much. There are very few things to do, I don't really have any friends or people my own age, and I'm feeling mentally and physically down most of the time.
Originally I wanted to just try to come home early full stop but I've been considering my options and a few new things crossed my mind. Does anyone have any advice or stories about former language assistants who have either asked for a transfer to another school, or who have quit their job and found another one for the rest of their time in Spain? I have contacts through my boyfriend who could apparently have me in Malaga - even though I want to come home, I think being in a bigger city with a lot more to do would be wonderful for the anxiety I'm having right now. If that fails, however, I guess my only option is to ask for a transfer to another school in a bigger place but that seems like a long shot - has anyone been in the same boat who can offer me some advice?
Oh i just read the title so it’s through the British council. Can you please let me know about you situation Because i’m Currently in a similar one .Thanks
In terms of my studies I’m going to work with family friends in France, my uni are making me do a full seven months there from January to July (for joint languages the time is split between 3 months for one language and 7 for the other, obviously by xmas I’ll have done three months here so it technically satisfies those requirements). It sucks that I can’t split it up as I originally wanted to but I’ll be with people I know and it’s only two months longer!
Don’t be anxious, just explain the situation and that you don’t want to return. Can I ask what’s causing you to not want to return? For me being out here is affecting my mental health in a really negative way.
