Subject: a gap year

I want to take a gap year before going to university. I need more time to figure out what I want to do. What’s more, I’ll have the opportunity to embrace freedom and to live a little))) Are pre-uni gap years common in Russia?

…I watched a film yesterday. It impressed me greatly…

Hi Mark!

Thanks for your email. Taking a gap year sounds like a fantastic idea!

I’m happy to answer your questions. In Russia, pre-uni gap years aren’t as common as they are in your country, but the idea of a gap year is gaining popularity, and more school leavers are considering this option to have some time to think about their future paths. As for me, I’m planning to go to university next year to study engineering. I’m excited about the opportunities that lie ahead! When it comes to traditional degrees, I think they still hold value, but the job landscape is evolving.

I’m curious about the film you watched yesterday. What’s the film about? What genre is it? Who are the main actors in the film?

Write back soon, and take care!

Best wishes,
