When the world started to return to relative normality after the pandemic, I knew I wanted to finally move to Kosovo, where my father is from, to improve my Albanian. The last six months have been an unforgettable experience, aside from improving my Albanian I have learnt a lot about the culture and made great memories. The highlights have been travelling around Kosovo and seeing the wonderful nature the country has to offer. I have also enjoyed eating and learning how to make local delicacies such as pita and speca me gjizë.
None of this would have been possible without the help of the John Speak Trust.
The scholarship has enabled me to take language lessons, travel and to fully enjoy my time in Kosovo. I would like to thank the Trust for everything and I hope that many others are able to benefit from the language scholarship in the future!
