Benefits of studying and living abroad
Traveling abroad and living in a new culture is a
remarkable experience. We have seen the benefits of studying and
living abroad in our alumni students. To become fluent in a language it is
essential to live and interact with fluent speakers. Two Worlds United students live
within a native language speaking host family, learning the customs and
traditions of the culture, sharing meals, holidays & festivals, social
activities and everyday life. This experience allows students to learn the language
at an accelerated pace and in a real context, but the benefits extend far
beyond the acquisition of language skills. Students gain maturity,
flexibility, and independence after traveling and adapting to a new
environment and culture. They become more aware of the world in which they
live as they learn respect for other customs, cultures and for themselves.
They become more self-reliant and gain a deep sense of confidence after
going through such a difficult transition to a new language and culture.
Being an exchange student is a very rewarding
experience, and often a life-changing one. It often gives students
the integrity they will need in their upcoming start in college.
After having made the transition into a new culture and language, students
have the confidence to pursue goals and to strive to put more from
themselves whatever may be the task at hand.
