Reviving this thread as DS has just found out he is going to Bordeaux region for his year abroad as a Language Assistant with the British Council. Won't know what city/town/village he's going to until the summer. ggirl it's good to know where they're going isn't it. means they can start planning. Anyone else's DCs off to Bordeaux or working as a Language Assistant on their year abroad?
ooh glad to see this post! my dsd has got her year abroud in 'outree mer - ie a Caribbean island! slightly shocked and not sure what her costs will be. She gets her erasmus grant plus some euros as 'pay' for her teaching assistantship. But anybody know how it works outside of actual france?
Reviving again. DS now in Hamburg - very hot. Just getting to grips with his temporary new life there. He has been allocated a very rural Teaching Assistant placement in the Bordeaux region, miles from anywhere & close to the Spanish border. Not what I was hoping for him. Any tips for rural living in France?
