We said goodbye to many, some will come back after their holiday and some others, instead, have decided to make a life change and will live in another country for a while.
I love seeing the excitement of the days before the departure and the mix of emotions that everyone feels when is about to face a new challenge. I try to encourage my students explaining that, of course, there will be difficult moments where they will probably feel completely lost :-) but the good moments, will certainly be more and the satisfaction of coping with all different things in another language, will be the best reward. My tip for all of you who is about to leave for the trip of your life is: " Don't worry, relax, speak as much as possible and have fun!" :-)
