|On the move again, find my way around Scotland|
The second time I moved abroad, I went to the Netherlands. This time I didn't speak the language and it’s not something I would advise. Although the Dutch are famed for speaking English as well or even better than us, it’s embarrassing to admit you don’t understand a word; you don’t want to look like an ignorant Brit abroad. So I tried to pick up bits here and there (mostly I smiled and nodded). Lots of countries offer free basic language classes or ones with a reduced price for students, which is worth looking into.
