Holiday studios abroad are an extraordinary opportunity for personal and cultural growth for many young people and teenagers who, thanks to experience outside the national borders and far from mom and dad, have the opportunity to learn about a new world and learn to get away on your own. London is certainly one of the most popular destinations from this point of view, but beyond the British capital the list of destinations is very long: just to stay at England alone, it is worth quoting Hastings, Brighton and the classic Oxford and Cambridge, while in the rest of Europe there are proposals for all tastes, from Ireland, with Cork and Berlin in the foreground, in Malta, with the capital Valletta and St. Paul.
As is well known, study holidays abroad allow you to improve your learning of a foreign language, usually English. And who thinks that today’s boys do not need them, immersed in subtitled TV series and songs of their own in the language of Shakespeare and Beckham, makes a big mistake: according to the Ef Epi report devoted to mastering the English language, in fact, our country is ranked only at the 28th place in the world rankings, ahead of France – the French retrospection to express itself in a different language than naturally is not just a common place – Russia and Ukraine.
In theory, to learn English well you would need more than a thousand lessons a year, but it would not be better to combine practice, with a stay in place in one of the many countries where English is the language mother? In fact, school alone seems inadequate, and it is worth considering the idea of facing a home-based experience beyond the economic costs it may have.
Apparently, the study abroad industry seems to have no crisis, at least by hearing the most important international agencies involved in aggregating students year after year to send them abroad. In fact, moms and dads believe that investment in training is indispensable, while employers are very positively judged by candidates who reside abroad in their curriculum and in their own past (summer holidays in Ibiza are not valid, obviously).
Offers are so numerous and the proposals of the agencies are so numerous that it is likely to sink into a magnum sea where it is difficult to navigate. First of all, however, families are called to decide whether to send their children on vacation alone or in a group. It all depends on the personality of the boys, but also by their level of autonomy and the educational approach they want to opt for. For young people who are not yet 17 years old, and who may be looking for a vacation for the first time without their parents, the accompanying group seems to be the most appropriate solution, taking advantage of a formula that also includes an insurance policy, flight and accommodation.
The older boys, on the other hand, can try to dive with an individual departure. Such a situation has two great advantages: first of all, the possibility of experiencing greater autonomy; secondly, the certainty of avoiding the tendency to speak in Italian with their travel companions, which would make the experience less useful. It is not to be underestimated, moreover, the pleasure of establishing international relations and of forming friendships with people from other countries, so that new cultures and emotions can be encountered. Family accommodation, therefore, is the answer to which to refer, also because it allows you to touch the everyday of the place where you are.
