    travel abroad

    Dear teachers, could you proofread these sentences?

    John's willed to travel/go/live abroad.
    They say traveling abroad is a unforgettable experience!
    To travel abroad someone has to take his/her passport card!
    When you are abroad, one can say you are off.

    Thank you very much

    I'm not sure about this one. You can say "I'm off" meaning "I'm going" - "I'm off abroad next week". But I don't think this is proper English. I think it is more of a colloquialism.

    Thank you very much
    I'm not a teacher.

    Re: travel abroad

    Thank you!

    I think it was a British teacher who told me once: When are you off? or something like that.

    As for 'willed', why is that sentence wrong? Can't I say I am willed or available to travel anywhere?

    Thanks
