Top tips for learning a language

Learn a language abroad
Practice makes perfect
Getting to grops with a language will take at least 2 weeks of intensive study and practice, but doing a little bit each day will really help to make a difference!
Engage with the locals
Leave your comfort zone and try out your new found language skills on the locals, whether it's asking for directions or ordering a coffee at a cafe, you'll learn from the people you meet.
Immerse yourself in the culture
Get stuck into the local way of living and watch a couple of tv shows, grab the local paper or even extend your stay with an additional local course such as tango lessons!
Local living
Opt to live with a host family for the duration of your study trip where you can practice your language skills outside of the classroom. Speak to one of our travel experts for more information!

Indeed you can! We've also got plenty of volunteering programs in selected countries on our dedicated volunteering page, so if you would like to extend your stay after your course is over ask one of our travel experts to help you arrange to do some volunteering.
