20 Things You’ll Definitely Understand If Your Year Abroad Is Almost Over

No matter where you’ve been on your year abroad, there are some things you’ll understand now that it’s about to come to an end.

1. Not being able to get your head around how fast the time has gone.

2. Or the fact that you’ve made it this far, to be honest.

3. Because it doesn’t seem like that long ago that you were worrying you wouldn’t be able to do it.

4. Panicking that you haven’t made the most of your time away.

16. And after a year of living abroad as an exotic Erasmus student, you definitely don’t feel ready to just be a regular final year.

17. Partly because you’re worried that your language skills still won’t be good enough.

18. Or that you’ll just forget everything you’ve learned as soon as you leave.
