    Un ano sabático te haría hacerse más independiente

    I want to say: A gap year can make you become more independent. Is this a correct translation into Spanish? Thanks

    Un año sabático puede volverte más independiente.
    An annus is not an anus. Try to find the "Ñ" in your keyboard.

    Do you have a full numberpad? If you hold alt and hit 164 I believe it is, it'll make an ñ.

    Why are you being so sarcastic and rude? There's no need for it.

    And actually, I'll have you know that it makes a euro sign, like this - € (In case you didn't know!) because I use it regulary.

    I see how my question (Do you have a full numberpad?) could have been rude now. I use a laptop, so I don't have a full numberpad..(I had to install multiple languages). My apologies also.
