Hola bonjour hello
Hola! Bonjour! Hello!

I’m Christina and I study French and Spanish at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

P.S. I’m also a St. John’s past student. 

Bienvenido a espa a
¡Bienvenido a España!

Spain has 17 Autonomous Regions (ComunidadesAutonomas). This means that these regions are self-governed. Like Wales.

I will be studying in Madrid at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid from September until January.

All of my classes (bar one) will be taught in Spanish and I have chosen to study translation and grammer along with French and Spanish. I will also be studying English literature and learning a new language entirely…Portuguese.


Palacio Real - The Royal Palace


  • Madrid is the capital and it is the largest city in Spain.

  • It is the home of the Spanish royal family therefore it is the political centre of Spain.

  • I have never been to Madrid before but I am looking forward to learning about this beautiful city.

El Centro de Madrid

(The Centre of Madrid)

El Parque de Retiro - Retiro Park

Madrid being the capital means that travelling through out Spain is VERY easy.

And I have friends staying in multiple places all over Spain.

Bienvenue en france
Bienvenue Spain is VERY easy. en France

Angers is 3 hours from Paris, the Capital.

For Semester two,

I will be studying at the UniversiteCatholique de l’Ouestin Angers from February to June.

During this placement, I must not only study but write my dissertation in French. The bonus is that I don’t have to sit any exams. YAY!

I’ve visited France before with St. John’s on the French Exchange (the reason I am now studying languages at University – Start nagging for it to make a return. I promise you’ll love it!)

Angers Spain is VERY easy.

Angers is a city in western France with a population of around 147,305 inhabitants.

Angers is the home of blue chocolate (Bizarre, I know, but I will try it).

It’s a lot smaller than Madrid but I’m looking forward to the difference in size.

Angers has an airport ( Spain is VERY easy. l’aéroport)

The city is located on the river Maine (La Maine estunerivière française du Maine-et-Loire)

CouffonPavot residence universitaire –

University Halls named CouffonPavot

In Angers, I will be living in the town centre (le centre-ville) in a halls of residence (la residence universitaire).

Angers is famous for its towering castle (la château) filled with the extraordinary Apocalypse Tapestry.

As I mentioned, I have classmates and friends already abroad. My year abroad is going to be full of travels.

Including a three week long Interrail across Europe in July.























Hasta luego bient t

I’m looking forward to sharing my year abroad experiences with you over the next year. Hopefully, you will experience the same enthusiasm for French that I felt after attending the year abroad.
