Language Learning Gap Years

Immersing yourself in another country is often the best way to learn a foreign language. Spend anything from a few weeks to several months in the country of your choice. Most language learning gap year courses include formal lessons, often in a classroom environment, during the day, and the chance to stay with local families, where you can improve your general conversational language. You will also get plenty of free time to explore your host country and take part in local projects.

If you are heading out on a gap year, you have the perfect opportunity to enhance your language learning skills. Being able to converse, and have people converse with you, in a different language, is by far the best way to learn. Is there a better way of learning a foreign language than living abroad in total immersion, while working or studying? With ESL - Language Studies abroad, you get the unique opportunity to embark on such a long-term learning adventure, with the help of our renowned partners schools all over the world. ESL's language courses are flexible and cover a wide range of languages in more than 50 countries. Click on the following link to find out how to learn a language as part of your gap year.
