Where and when to practice an English language tool abroad
Since English is the living language most studied by middle school and high school students, English-speaking countries are more in demand than the others for children and teenagers. Great Britain remains the main destination, but you can also opt for Ireland, Malta, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Similarly, for Spanish, while Spain obviously remains a safe bet, Mexico, Costa Rica and Ecuador are destinations that may interest anyone wishing to be completely immersed in the language, provided they have time on the spot!
For a short time, it is better to stay in European destinations. The formalities to be completed are light. More distant destinations can be considered from one month of stay.
As there are many requests for language stays, it is better to start early. Some destinations are in high demand (example: English-speaking countries), certain periods as well (such as school holidays) and the number of places is very often limited.
The English language tool abroad usually starts in August/September or February/March. Meetings for new families include two compulsory highlights: the individual interview with your child, carried out in the presence of his brothers and sisters and the parents. The whole family must be present. All the difficulties and pitfalls related to this year of exchange are approached without taboos. Families and children in the process of exchange are present in order to bring their testimony and their experience.
Learn English to your child with an English language tool abroad
The advantage of learning a second language from childhood is that the young person will have an important additional asset for their studies and their future. In addition to having the opportunity to meet students from all over the world, a good level of foreign language will open the doors to the professional world. He will benefit from a great open-mindedness when he travels.
An English language tool in immersion in a foreign country is undoubtedly the key to deepening your knowledge in a second language. ;Furthermore, we are not only talking about language learning but also about personality development and open-mindedness.
Living with a local family involves accepting the host family's cultural differences and customs, which requires a period of adjustment at first. The young person through this experience will change his perception of things. He will thus improve and also gain in maturity. This is when an English language tool abroad really comes into its own. Not only does the student constantly improve his level of language but grows throughout the stay.
Helping your child find a pen pal on their own is sure to be a beneficial experience. He will choose someone who seems likeable to him and will become more involved in the exchange which will take place during the school holidays.
