Hello. I’m Polly and I’ve just completed my degree in French and Spanish at New College, Oxford. I started this blog in 2015 as a place to write about what I was doing during the year I spent abroad as part of my degree; when I went back to Oxford for fourth year, blogging sadly fell to the wayside and keen bean abroad sat gathering virtual dust.
However, post-graduation job offers were not exactly flooding in and so, as of August 2017, this keen bean is abroad once more: I’m living in Santiago de Chile and working as an English Language Assistant with the British Council. I’m treating it as a cross between year abroad 2.0 and a gap year (but never a gap yah). So, watch this space for updates on how the most gringa-ish gringa that ever did live manages to survive in one of South America’s most happenin’ cities.
