10 reasons why summer language camps abroad are a great option for teenagers
Here are some great reasons to consider it as an option this year…

3. The experience of living away from home in a foreign country will fill any student with a great sense of self-confidence and achievement, which will really help their personal development.
4. Spending a summer with students from other countries will mean that they can make friends from all over the world, and gain an all-important insight into other cultures.
5. Making foreign friends that they want to stay in touch with will give them an incentive to keep up their language skills!
Special considerations for young learners
6. Students are accommodated in safe, comfortable lodgings. They usually have the choice between on-site, supervised residences and carefully vetted host families.

8. The food offered to students is designed to be healthy and nutritional, and can be adapted for any special dietary needs that students may have.
9. Language camps vary in length, and you can choose to send your child for anywhere between 1 and 4 weeks, depending on how comfortable they feel being away from home.
Fun options for free time
