Highly recommend Andego Abroad!!

I spent my gap year in Annecy, France, working as an English teacher. Teaching English as a 19-year-old and living in a foreign country on your own presents its own challenges, but the skills and confidence I developed will serve me in my future endeavours in college and beyond. I had an amazing host family with whom I still stay in contact and I was also able to travel to 11 countries during my vacations and summer! I encourage everyone to take a gap year if they can; it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for personal growth and this program is a great option!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
I went paragliding in the French Alps with my host family! I just had to take a deep breath and run off the side of the mountain; there's not much else I could do to prepare myself. Would highly recommend :)

Andégo Internships Abroad

I just got back from spending the year in Annecy, France with Andégo. I was working at a school teaching English to 4th and 8th graders as well as working as an RA at the high school boarding school. I spent the weekends with a local host family which offered a chance for me to be completely immersed in French culture and language. Working at the school gave me real world experience and a chance for me to feel like a part of the local community. I’m very grateful for my year off and the opportunity Andégo provided. I did a lot of research on gap years and found Andégo’s to be unique. I wasn’t able to find any other program that offered a paying job with the opportunity to live in a host family. Living abroad is not always easy and my experience wasn’t without times of difficulty or homesickness, but overall I had a great time and wish I could go back!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Teaching for the first time all by myself was definitely intimidating! I had to ask for help and advice from other teachers at the school. In the end I really enjoyed teaching and had fun with my students, but it wasn’t without difficulty in the beginning.
