How long should you go on a language trip to Ireland to make real progress?
There is no ideal length of time for a language stay in Ireland. It all depends on the profile of your children and their needs! Each child has different objectives to which correspond different lengths of stay.
If you wish to offer a trip to your young child, it will be more reasonable to limit the duration of his first stay away from his home and his parents: a one-week trip will therefore be the ideal solution to help him acquire autonomy without destabilizing it.
From middle school, a two-week stay is the perfect length of time to let young teenagers gain their independence and introduce them gently to this type of trip abroad.
In high school or for college students already experienced in the field of language stays, leaving for 3 weeks or even a whole month may be the best choice: this allows trainees to fully live this experience and make significant progress in foreign languages.
For particularly autonomous high school students, it will even be possible to take a language course for a full summer. Back home for the start of the school year, they will move on to the next class having made great progress in modern languages.
Students will be able to take advantage of periods outside school holidays to take a language trip. They will even have the opportunity to go away for a full semester in order to live in total immersion abroad and thus quickly improve their language level, especially speaking.
Finally, professionals will rather opt for a "work experience" formula adapted to their profile and their particular needs. Lasting several months, it guarantees them rapid progress in the chosen language and knowledge that they can then reinvest in the context of their work.
Of course, the longer and more intense the immersion, the more complete the language learning will be! Thus, if your main objective is to improve your skills in the foreign language of your choice, you will have to favor long stays as much as possible. This will give you the time you need to assimilate the language and culture of the destination country while multiplying the opportunities to interact with its inhabitants.
Your decision on the length of stay also depends on the budget, which you will need to plan for depending on the trip you choose.
How much does a language course cost?
The cost of a language stay will mainly depend on the type of stay chosen.
Among stays abroad, some destinations and packages are also more expensive due to the higher quality of experience they offer to the participants of the stay. There are also multiple options you can add to your stay to customize it to better suit your needs or those of your child.
The quality of a stay should not be neglected in favor of its price! Indeed, by leaving with a certified organization, you are sure to enjoy an unforgettable trip that combines discovery and efficiency. Qualified coaches will ensure the safety and well-being of young trainees away from their parents, while native and certified teachers will help trainees make rapid progress in the target language.
So that you or your children can live an exceptional experience, it is better to choose a language course offering a complete program with visits and multiple activities!
