Studying abroad is the best way to learn a new language, but how do you know if you’re really ready to start this adventure? To help you make this difficult decision we’ve put in a list of signs that will make you see if you’re really ready to start the process.
1. You have an obsession with music/series/movies from a country
Watching TV shows or movies and listening to music in the language you’re studying (or want to study) is one of the best ways to learn. But if little by little this becomes an obsession, it’s time to pack up and experience what you feel while in the country itself.
2. You’re hooked on learning
It may sound kind of weird, we know it, but it’s more common than it looks. You are not able to take a bus or subway trip without advancing any other level in your language app, or without reading a chapter of a book in that language. You have a mission to improve every day and spend as much time as you can honing your knowledge and accent
3. You dream in another language
This is usually a privileged thing that only happens to those who master a language, but if you are very prepared to study abroad, that language finds a way to sneak into your dreams.
4. You resent speaking only one language
Someone once said that the limit of a person’s language is the limit of their world, and there is no greater truth. So if you’re already tired of your world in one language and the limits that communication imposes on you in it, it’s your time. There’s a huge world out there, and it’s time for you to talk to him.
5. You love food from a given country
Few things allow you to get into a country as much as its food. Your taste buds feel like experiencing what it’s like to eat that food you love so much, in their home country. Track! When the restaurant staff already knows by heart what you’re asking for, it’s time to go.
6. You are a curious and open-minded person
Knowing the world makes you passionate, intrigued by other cultures and you keep asking yourself questions about places, sounds and flavors from all over the world. Getting lost in an unknown city sounds great and you can no longer wait to be in a city where no one knows you. You want to know every corner and learning a language is the step before you become a globetrotter.
7. You know what excursions and activities you’re going to do
Google has become your best friends. Thanks to the you have discovered subway maps, urban excursions and an immense list of things not to be missed. You already have the itinerary for the first week at the destination you want to visit so much and it is the perfect time to give way to that research.
8. Everyone knows your plans to study abroad
You’re so excited about your curriculum, you share it with everyone. Your friends, your family and even your neighbor know you’re going away. There’s nothing wrong with sharing it!
9. You want to know what it’s like to live in another country
Language classes, apps, movies, podcast… you find them super interesting and amuse you. But you know that total language immersion is only possible by practicing it 24 hours with people from that place. Worrying about progressing as much as possible only shows that you are a mature and fully prepared person.
So it’s time, seize the opportunity and travel with Ynsitu to the country you so want to meet. Our courses abroad will help you improve the language and live a unique experience. Cheer up to fulfill your dream!
