The big advantage of learning a language in a country where it’s spoken is that you hear it everywhere. You get exposed to it around the dinner table with your host family, at the gym, in a café or at the shopping mall. Your pronunciation improves radically. New words and expressions are suddenly yours. It is an almost automatic process. And it is so much fun!
Imagine walking down the hallway of your new school. You take out some books from the locker and enter the classroom where your new friends are waiting. Coming to a new school is exciting and inspiring. This is where lots of the magic will happen.
A kind and motivated host family will be ready to open up their home and share their traditions with you. They will do everything to make you feel welcome. Most students come to call it their second home.
