The Importance of doing a Gap Year in an
English speaking country
Why a Gap Year ? Acquire new skills Contact with different Cultures Learn About yourself, about the others and about the world Have Fun :-) Having fun The "having fun" part doesn't need to be explained. Twelve years of hard work is a lot of work. God knows we need a rest. Skills It is usual for the people that take a gap year to make a traineeship or to attend a small course.

One window takes us to the world: we see with our eyes the difference between a western European country and an African country and we have to learn to live in a society that it isn’t ours. The other window takes us to ourselves, to the discovery about what we really are, our abilities and our qualities.
