In your opinion, what are the main benefits for a student to study abroad?
To study abroad in a completely international environment is the best way to improve your language skills by experience different style of education , also gives you many unique opportunities . You can immerse yourself in new culture and improve your career prospects. Many students who studied English in England say that it was one of the most memorable experiences of their life. Learning English abroad is a great way to expand your horizons and perfect your English language skills. Also studying abroad let you to appreciate other cultures, overcome challenges of living in another country and gain a greater understanding of the world.

How do you see the future of language tourism?
I am very optimistic about the future of language tourism as it is important to remind ourselves that this isn’t the first time crisis the industry has suffered. Since we don’t know how the pandemic will progress, I believe that Language tourism will come back relatively fast while business travel will take a bit longer. The industry will need to go through a transformation to respond to the circumstances brought about the pandemic.
What types of courses do you think will be most in demand in the future?
I believe that Family Courses (Parents and children) will have an increase trend after the pandemic as Parents will be more reluctant to send their children by themselves. So Parents and their children study in the same locations. We organize those courses for children (6 to 16 yo) and their Family member (21 year old +). I also can see an increase of the demand of ONLINE courses for adults and professional business courses.
