We listed 5 of the most important benefits of studying abroad for you! Are you ready?
1. YOU WILL IMPROVE YOUR LANGUAGE SKILLS
The incredible thing about learning another language in a country in which English is the natively spoken language is that you won’t learn just at school, but also in your daily routine. Whether on the street, at work, on the bus, at home with your flatmates, travelling and even listening to people speaking English all the time.
At NED Training Centre, the classes focus on developing your communicative abilities. At all times you will be encouraged and supported to use the English language. You will learn in a variety of contexts and develop all four skills: READING, WRITING, SPEAKING, LISTENING.
When you study abroad, you don’t just learn the language, you live it!
2. YOU WILL IMPROVE YOUR CONFIDENCE, SELF-ESTEEM, AND CAPACITY TO SOLVE PROBLEMS
The first person you find abroad is yourself. There’s nothing better than to discover things that you didn’t know about yourself and which you could use to get better opportunities in life. According to IES, most of the people who studied abroad feel that this experience helped them develop valuable job skills, such as language proficiency, cultural understanding, tolerance for ambiguity, adaptability, and self-confidence.
