Q&A call: freelance sabbaticals abroad, Part II

With Eve Bodeux, Corinne McKay and Tess Whitty (aired live on March 20, 2013).
In this call, we check in on the results of Eve’s five-month stay in France, Corinne’s two-month stay in Switzerland and Italy, and talk to Tess Whitty who is midway through her year-long stay in Sweden. Our traveling translators offer tips on phone service, mail forwarding, taxes, coping with time differences, and using your sabbatical as a professional development and language improvement opportunity.
