Get the most from sending your child to a foreign country to improve their English

전통적인 학생 언어 휴가.

전통적으로, 학생들은 외국에 그룹으로 전송됩니다.  They stay in dorms as a group where there can be anything from twenty to a few hundred students.  The daily schedule is normally English Classes in the morning and some sporting activities in the afternoon.  The typical duration is 2 weeks The experience is great fun for children/ teenagers, 하나, 영어를 향상시키는 제한된 혜택이있다.

이 접근 방식의 문제는 학생들이 체류 기간에 같은 국적의 아이들에 둘러싸여 있다는 것입니다.

다음과 같이의 영향은:

  • 그들은 그런 식으로 대화하는 것이 더 쉽습니다으로 그 나라의 언어를 이야기로 되돌아갑니다
  • 그들은 영어 수업에서 무엇을 배우고 연습 할 기회가 없다
  • 어떤 기회를 모국어로 영어를 말하는 사람들과 영어 회화를 연습 없습니다

최종 결과는 누락 된 것 다른 나라에있는에서 영어를 향상시킬 수있는이 기회입니다.  게다가, 그들은 정상적인 생활이나 문화가 국가에서 그들이 방문하는 어떤지 경험하지 않습니다.

The new language vacation approachTotal Language Immersion

The more recent approach to Language travel and improving a child’s English or second language is through total language immersion.   The approach of total language immersion has been fine-tuned and adopted by hebe Adventures. It is a completely different approach to what is outlined above.

What we have found, is that in many cases international students have been studying English from a young age.   There general level of English is very good and in essence, what is required is an environment where they have to practice speaking English.

Total Language Immersion puts the student in an environment where they live life as a local, living with a host family and attending camps/ schools/ work placement that is principally attended by local children/ teenagers.

Private English lessons can also be provided if required and the learnings from these lessons can be applied immediately with their host family or in the summer camps.

With this approach they get 3  key benefits over the traditional approach:

  • Because they living with a local host family that are not fluent in the studentsfirst language it is an environment where they have to speak English
  • The camps they attend are for local children, therefore, they have to practice their English while they are attending camp.
  • Living with a host family and being part of the family, immerses the student in family life, outing, sports etc.  They get to experience the culture of the country and what daily life is like.

Overall it is a much more complete and rewarding experience and very advantageous from improving their conversational English.  They also make new often life long friends in another country.
