BA Modern Languages (Spanish with Mandarin)
Year Abroad Destination: Argentina
I’m a student of Spanish with Mandarin and I spent my year abroad in a work placement in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I was working with Oasis Collections, a luxury rental firm that pioneered the ‘home-meets-hotel’ concept of providing concierge and hotel services to an AirBnB-type home. Apart from the invaluable experience of working with a rapidly expanding, global company, I came back with a knowledge of a completely new culture and vastly improved language skills. I’ll never forget the constant excitement of wandering the passionate streets of the city during the week and galloping across the pampas at the weekend, tasting every delicious bite of a new cuisine and the liberating feeling of being able to explore on the other side of the world!
