At home, do you discuss the importance of knowing several languages? Are you looking at language trips in order to give your child the chance to learn a foreign language in the country where it is spoken all the time? Great! That is one of the best ways to get really good at speaking a new language. Plus, your child will become more independent and get a head start in building their international network.
STS Education has been giving students the chance to learn foreign languages through language trips since 1958. We know this is a big step for you as a parent, and for your child. With our knowledge and dedication, we will help you the entire way and we are here to answer any and all questions you might have.
A language trip is not just about new words and expressions; there are also new favorite foods, fun history and fantastic memories. It’s about living somewhere else, even for a short period of time. And it’s about developing an understanding of another culture and having the chance to learn more of a foreign language. This is exciting and also leads to personal growth. Your child will broaden their views and gain new perspectives, which leads to personal insight and self-confidence. In addition, they will make new friends on the trip from lots of different countries and learn how to manage a bit more on their own at a young age. That is truly something that your child will find useful for the rest of their life!
Sending your child on a language trip means you have to let your child face and handle new situations and challenges on their own. That may feel scary and different, because at home, you are always nearby. Seeing this kind of growth will be an incredible experience for you, and you will be so proud. See yourself as a coach; that is what being the parent of a language trip student is all about.
