While moving abroad may have its challenges, it can often open up a new door of opportunities. If you’ve ever wanted to take the leap and start a brand new life in Europe, read on to discover why it might be the best decision of your life.
You’ll gain more confidence
Beginning a new life in Europe will involve its own set of challenges and will require a certain degree of independence. You’ll have to move house, learn how to pay your bills and navigate local transport systems – while these things may sound intimidating at first, the feeling of satisfaction you will get once you have achieved them will make the hard times worth it. In fact, knowing you can overcome obstacles in a completely unknown environment will give you the confidence to tackle other challenges in life.
Improved communication skills
When you move abroad, you will inevitably have to build new social and professional circles. You will therefore have more than enough opportunities to improve your communication skills – which will be important in all aspects of your life.
Better foreign language skills
While taking language courses and practising new words on language-learning apps can definitely help you acquire a new language, the best way of learning is to live in a country that speaks it. Immersing yourself in the language of locals is a great way to pick up some listening and speaking skills – you might even pick up some specialist phrases to impress your friends.
A fresh perspective on life
Regardless of whether you are from a small town or a big city, moving outside of the UK will undoubtedly give you a new perspective on life. Learning from other cultures and communities can help you expand your worldview and develop your personal values. You’re unlikely to gain this new approach to life if you’ve never moved outside of your local community.
Expand your professional network
When you live and work abroad, you will be able to expand your professional network. This will have a great impact on your career, especially as jobs are often filled through referrals and mutual connections rather than being advertised publicly.
New life skills
Sometimes you can be separated from your regular support system when you move abroad, forcing you to find out about potential knowledge and skills gaps that you did not realise you had. For example, if you’ve struggled with budgeting properly or cooking on your own then living abroad will make you learn these skills out of necessity.
