Travelling abroad to study on an English course is a very big decision. The idea of going somewhere new, where you don’t know anyone, could seem a bit scary, whether it is for 1 week or 3 months. On the other hand, there are lots of benefits that students can get from studying a language in its native country. The United Kingdom is a great destination to learn English. We are going to give you six reasons that will convince you!
1. Noticeable English improvement
The longer you study abroad and the longer you are immersed in a new culture and a new language, the more fluent you will get. Receiving daily lessons along with the opportunity to make friends with native speakers and international students is guaranteed to improve your ability and confidence. You will learn skills that will stay with you for life!
2. Expand your vocabulary
Learning a new language is not the same as living with it. If you live in the UK for a while, you will have the opportunity to learn new, natural, expressions and words from native speakers. You can’t just learn everything from books!
3. Maturity and independence
Living abroad is, without a doubt, the best way to get to know oneself and to mature. Through being on your own and facing new challenges, you learn to adapt to new environments and situations very quickly. I can assure you that you will learn a lot about the world in general, and particularly about yourself.
4. New people, new opportunities
Immersing yourself in another culture, sometimes totally different from yours, and making new friends from all over the world, will turn you into a more independent and self-confident person. Also, as we said before, it will help you get to know yourself better. There are a wide range of opportunities waiting for you and you won’t find them if you never decide to pack your luggage and explore.
5. A new way to learn English
You will probably find that English is taught in a different way in a native country like the UK than in your country. That will give you an excellent opportunity to improve your language with very unique activities. Normally, speaking and listening are the hardest skills for most students to improve. Our English teachers know about that and they will focus on it to help you reach your goals.
6. Your CV will look better
Adding to your CV that you have studied an English course in the UK will help you to stand out from the crowd when you apply for a job. English is an international language and lots of companies require candidates with a high level. For that reason, studying abroad will definitely help you to grow academically and professionally.
