Your reasons for wishing to learn a new language can be many. In some cases you are mid career and need to be able to communicate with customers or colleagues. In other cases you are dreaming about studying abroad, but your foreign language skills are not quite up to par. Or maybe you simply have an interest in languages and culture, and wish to learn and explore. Either way, you will find that you gain far more from studying a language abroad, than a few new words.

Language Study options worldwide

Language courses are offered in many different forms all over the world. For example, there are language schools all over the world that specialize in teaching foreign students the local language. This is perhaps the most common choice. Another option is the language courses offered by many universities. These will often last longer than a language school program, and be focused on preparing students for future academic study. Yet other schools specialize in the language of business. These schools often offer intensive courses with a focus on the language necessary for business communication such as negotiations and business manners.

Benefits of Language Study Abroad

One of the main benefits of going abroad to learn a new language or improve skills you already have, is the chance to truly immerse yourself in the culture as well as learning a language. This allows you to understand different ways of thinking and learn about traditions and cultural elements - things that often have an unexpected and strong influence on a language.

Such cultural elements can be for example how you greet new acquaintances, understand a new sense of humor, and appreciate a fully different set of cooking skills. Meeting a new culture can be just as valuable as learning the new language. And it is the two together that will make you truly proficient, and successful in communicating in the future.

A further advantage of learning a language in its original environment as opposed to at home, is that you meet such a wide variety of new people. Contacts are said to be invaluable, and it's true. Studying abroad will mean that you meet people, not just from your host country but from all over the world.  

It's also worth remembering that it's not just the contacts gained when studying a language abroad, but the friendships you form in the process. This gives you an understanding for, and acceptance of differences between people and cultures. Something, which in and of itself is a skill highly valued by employers today.

Learning a Language - a Changing Experience

So, whether you choose to study in China, France, Russia or Egypt, rest assured that you will gain the experience of a lifetime. Learning a language and meeting a culture will change the way you view the world. Get ready to open your mind!
