Spanish Study Abroad
If you are determined to take up Spanish study abroad then you are going to have some important decisions to make ahead of you. You have already taken the first step by realising that you want to do it – now you have to work on the details! The devil is in the details as they say, and if you do not get these right they could have quite the negative effect on your experience, so do think them over as carefully as possible before making any bookings.
The first thing to think about is whether you should study Spanish abroad in Spain or in one of the Latin American countries where Spanish is the official language, as these are all viable options. It is perhaps prudent to suggest that those who are learning right from scratch – total beginners, in other words – try Spain first, as this will give you access to more modern and comfortable living conditions, a more centralised accent, and a wider range of possibilities for practicing what you learn in class. You will also be experiencing the Spanish culture first hand, which is important to help you understand where the language came from and how it has developed.
You will be able to choose a language school, too, and there are several options on the table that will guarantee you the best tuition on the market. You could study at don Quijote, where they focus greatly on customer service and satisfaction and will make sure that you have everything you need to make your stay comfortable. They have a good range of courses available – perhaps not as many as the second option – and a number of Spanish schools throughout Spain to choose from.
The aforementioned second option that we could recommend for Spanish study abroad is to study at Enforex, where there is a huge range of choices when it comes to all aspects of the learning packages. They like to give students as much freedom as possible to build a package that really suits them and meets their needs, as they believe that this is the best way to run successful courses and make sure that everyone has the results that they were looking for by the time that they finish the program and return home and begin using the language.
There are plenty of different courses out there for you to choose from as well, and so long as you stick to Spanish immersion classes you are free to make that choice based on your own tastes as they will all be of a good enough standard to take you to the next level of your language skills. This choice depends on what direction you would like your Spanish study abroad to take – whether you would like to focus it more on your career or have more fun with it, or whether you want to study as much as possible about the culture and history of Spain itself while you learn the language.
