Learning a foreign language can be done either from home or abroad however most experts recommend that the best way to learn a language is through immersion. This is good news for many students as summer approaches!
You may be asking yourself, take a summer English course? Yes! There is no better way to spend your summer than traveling the world, exploring new places, and all the while learning a new language and culture.
In fact, many students will travel overseas for a few months during their summer break to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity. The best way to learn English is to study at a program which offer a variety of summer English courses. Most students who are looking for an intense program will study at an English language institute during the day and live with a host family or on-campus at night. Many students find this to be the best way: learn the structure, grammar, and vocabulary formally at school and then apply your newly acquired language with your new friends and host family.
As you begin to look at the different programs, you’ll see that there are a variety of English language programs. One popular institute, Sacred Heart University, offers three types of language programs including intensive English, semi-intensive English, and a part time program. With these different options, students are able to determine how many hours they want to spend in the classroom – be it 23 hours or only 2 hours – so that they can learn at their own pace.
Many programs, like Sacred Heart University, also provide tutoring and conversation partners to enhance their learning experiences. Additionally, these programs will also incorporate activities along with the summer English course so that your experience will be both fun and rewarding!
