Plan some intensive language study abroad

Study abroad

Where would you like to go?

Intensive study abroad can give you the ideal opportunity to immerse yourself in a language, as well as the chance to travel and experience a new country and its culture.

Choosing a short course abroad can be both exciting and daunting, which is why it helps to fully research your options. There are several aspects to consider and it’s important to make an informed decision to make the most of the experience.

Mastering languages and studying abroad can change who you are in wonderful ways. Research has shown that learning languages strengthens cognitive skills, including problem solving and mental flexibility, while studying abroad also builds independence and confidence.

My proudest achievement was when a Chinese person inexplicably asked me for directions and I was able to respond without hesitation.
