I suppose most of you went right away to university or college after graduation. I want to spent one year abroad before.I thought about different possibilities: I could go and be an au pair in the U.S. or in Canada, I thought about going to Chile and learn Spanish, and my last idea was to go to Sydney to help preparing the World Youth Day 2008 (either as a volunteer or an employee).
- Being an au pair would mean that I need several hours of experience with kids , and till now you couldn't be an au pair in Canada but they're about to change the legal situation at the moment. I'd love to go to Canada sometime....
- Going to Chile would be great to meet my friends there and to learn Spanish but none of the organizations go there. If you want to go to South America, you can go to Brazil, Ecuador or Peru. I will start a Spanish course on Wednesday.
- Last but not least: Sydney. It's my latest idea... I wanted to go to the WYD anyway so that would be a great chance to go there while keeping the costs limited. I also thought about studying English/Anglistics, so I'd have already a practical. I've been to Australia before but I wouldn't mind going there again... If I went there, I'd also work with people of many different nationalities, which can be very amazing and informative.
Please tell me what you think about my ideas - I need help in deciding!!!
