7 Reasons Why You Should Go on a Language Holiday!

There are lots of good reasons why you should go on a language holiday. Not to mention the fun you will have combining a unique travel experience with the benefit of learning a language. Travel and language blogger and author, The Intrepid Guide, gives us her top 7 reasons based on her own experience and professional opinion.


1. You Will Progress Faster

One of the most important benefits of a language holiday is that you will be full-immersed in the language. You will hear and speak it everyday. Most language courses are around 20 or 30 lessons per week, which will guarantee that you progress faster.

In the end you will find yourself practising the language in everyday situations, without even noticing it.


2. You Will Feel More Confident

As well as making you feel confident about speaking the language, a language holiday will also make you feel confident in other aspects of your life. You will develop your communication skills since the teachers employ the communicate approach which focuses on speaking and communication.


3. You Will Put Into Practice What You Learn

By having a full-immersion experience, you will put into practice what you learn in class. This is the best way to assimilate what you have been learning. You might make mistakes but it’s all part of the learning process.


4. You Will Improve Your CV

Learning a language has many benefits, and improving your CV is one of them. For some people it maybe even be the number 1 reason – opening up your career prospects. Most international companies and organisations require their staff to speak two or more languages. Turn this into your opportunity to have a holiday abroad whilst learning a language.


5. You Will Feel Like a Local

You will feel like a local and live like a local. Interact with local people, practise the language and create a routine for yourself. You might be staying for a few weeks or a few months – either way, you can feel at home.


6. You Will Meet New People

Different people, same interest – learn a language and discover a new culture. You can join activities outside of the classroom hours and get to know your classmates. You might be travelling solo but you won’t be alone.


7. You Will Never Know Where a Language Holiday May Lead You

You meet new people, travel to new places and discover different scenarios. When abroad, you might even fall in love with the place and want to move there!
