A polyglot is someone with a high degree of proficiency in several languages. A bilingual person can speak two languages fluently, whereas a trilingual three; above that the term multilingual may be used.
Now, currently, I am only trilingual in that I speak English, French and Castilian Spanish. However, I chose the name "travels of a polyglot" for this blog because during my time in Spain, I will also be required to learn Catalan, because I will be living in Tarragona in Catalonia. I also chose the name "travels of a polyglot" because I really, really, really like the word polyglot.
The image above shows the route I will take on my year abroad, firstly spending 5 -6 months in Aix-en-Provence in France, then another 5 - 6 months in Tarragona in Spain.
As this blog develops, I will include: a list of links that you may find useful when organising accommodation, an email address which you can use to contact me with any questions/suggestions for this blog, Sunderland University-specific posts regarding the organisation process on the English/Sunderland University side of things, and advice about finances and, of course and above all, news about my year abroad adventures.
I will aim to update this blog once a week, perhaps less depending on how busy I am with university work (I have a LOT to be getting on with at the moment) and will absolutely try my hardest to include every little detail that I can in order to help you future european explorers.
à bientôt!//¡hasta luego!
