There are many different working holiday options for your gap year and while many people from the UK decide to head to Australia or New Zealand, Canada could be a great option too.

Why not take the perfect opportunity during your gap year to learn a new language? You could combine it with travelling, volunteering or even working abroad. Here at mapthegap.co.uk we’ve put together some guides for you on language learning during your gap year. We’ve already done one on Spanish and this week we will be focusing on learning French.
Each week mapthegap.co.uk will be talking to someone who has taken a gap year to get the low down on what they did, how they did it and to get their tips and advice for getting the most out of your gap year. This week we talk to one of our travel writers, Esme Fox to find out what she got up to on her gap year.
