Any language student will be familiar with that oft-repeated tip from teachers: listening to podcasts in their target language.

Year Abroad Diary: December in Lyon

My last month is Lyon was definitely one of my absolute favourites. Trying to cram all the remaining things I wanted to do into one month at the same time as final exam season was definitely tiring, but it resulted in such a fun few weeks. My month started off with a weekend trip to the snowy, magical, little town of Chamonix. The trip took 4 hours on a BlaBla Car bus and was only 40 euros for a return journey! In Chamonix my friend and I sledded, went on snowy walks and drank lots of hot chocolate (it wasn’t quite ski season yet hence the no skiing). It really was the most amazing start to December!

After a week back in England at the start of November I was very ready to get back to life in Lyon. Although November amped up the amount of university work I had, due to a few mid-term assessments, I still managed to explore many parts of the city and have lots of fun. Since I came back in the second week of November, the temperature in Lyon had really dropped but luckily the city is prepared for the colder weather with outdoor heaters and blankets at many restaurants, cafés and bars.
