Travel-study your way to a deeper cultural understanding

Traveling to a foreign land can be daunting, even for the most seasoned of travelers. Once you’ve made the leap, however, one of the best ways to get acclimated to a new place, language, and culture is to enroll in a local school.

Many schools that include intensive language training as a part of their curriculum may also offer additional benefits like host family stays, introductory courses on local culture and cuisine, and other activities — a one-stop shop to make your entry into a new country a snap. In the end, you may find that the hardest part of the process is sifting through the countless number of available schools and choosing one over the other.

Luckily, the people at Worldwide Classroom have made this process much easier with their specialized program finder, travel planner, and helpful comments from past students.

Just a few weeks at a language school can get you speaking and understanding the basics of any language, and certainly feeling more comfortable in your new surroundings.
