Our blogs were written by young people from the UK. Each year we selected a new group of bloggers, from the British Council’s language assistants, who shared their experiences of learning languages and living abroad. The views and opinions expressed in the articles are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of the LearnEnglish Teens team.

Please note that this project ended in 2018 so some of the blog posts are no longer up to date.
