Have you been on a Study Work Create opportunity, or just spent some time travelling or living abroad? If so we want to hear from you…

As part of an upcoming video series, we’re looking for tales of cultural confusion.

Have you had a ‘lost in translation’ moment?

Has something hilarious, unexpected or just plain strange happened to you whilst exploring abroad?

Share with us your cultural (mis)adventures and your story may be selected to be immortalised in video.

Send your stories to studyworkcreate@britishcouncil.org by 30 April 2017.
