My placement has been a revelation. It has given me the feeling to be an actual part of the British society. I work as a teacher assistant at a special need school called Isebrook. The children are extremely challenging so most classes consist of 4 students. At the same time I`m designing an activity which should support children during transitions in their lives. This is part of my module: Transitions of Children.
Also I`ve chosen an extra subject (to pass the time) called european dimensions of education. This is not resulting in more credits but had one advantage: there was a trip to Brussels included. Together with 12 other students we visited all the façades of the European parliament. That was pretty interesting and it also gave me the opportunity of communicating in English throughout a whole week.
So overall it has been all very inspiring and academically challenging but I miss cheap Holland

Hi Tim, I do agree that 590 pounds a month is not very cheap! But I'm glad to hear that your placement was a revelation. I sincerely hope that your last month in Northampton wil be enjoyable, greetz, Jan
