After graduating from university in Poland, I decided to take a gap year to study Chinese and travel. I asked ICL for help in choosing the right university among all the options available and find me a well located apartment, where I was sure to meet plenty of people from different backgrounds. This is exactly what happened! in 3 days I was already settled and spent the week end in a village not far from the city, another trip ICL helped me design as I could not speak Chinese yet. I am now back in Eastern Europe with the language, contacts in many countries and, most importantly, memories of a unique experience.
