Hi, this year after secondary school, we got a place at .

However, the place is not for this year. It is for entry year when we’ll be nineteen. When you take a year off between fi nishing secondary school and university, it is called a “gap year.”

In our gap year, we will work six months in China in
a school for children with no parents. It will be hard work
but good experience for us. After this, we will work in a kids
English camp in Japan. Then we’ll to Nepal and walk
in the Himalayas for two before moving to Thailand. If we have
saved enough money, we will be able to relax in Thailand. Then we plan to
Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam before fl ying home.

We are looking forward to spending a very gap year. We think it will be a great experience before starting our next year at university.
