In your opinion, what are the main benefits for a student to study abroad?

High level of education in the UK and Ireland
Diplomas from European universities are in demand all over the world.
During even a short term training you can improve your knowledge of a foreign language.
Studying abroad involves new acquaintances and the emergence of new useful connections.
You can get a job before graduation.
Nobody imposes the learning process itself.
It is possible to travel inside the new country , and more

How do you see the future of language tourism?

I think that as soon as the issue of free movement becomes more or less settled, students will go to explore new countries again.Having meetings (online, unfortunately), many agents are enthusiastically asking about 2022, when, hopefully, most countries will have free access to the vaccine.Another question to which we do not yet have answers, unfortunately, how will the movement of children under 16 will take place.

But, otherwise, I think there will be no changes. And the industry will return to the level of 2019.

What types of courses do you think will be most in demand in the future?

In my opinion, the IELTS preparation will be popular , as IELTS is requeated for all Higher Education institutions. Business English will still have its place in future. As after Covid- 19 time , I quess, the business became even more global with all Zoom meetings availibility.
