Why Have an Immersion Abroad?

It is an adventure

You may think that taking short vacations abroad is a sort of adventure. While this may be true, when you have vacations abroad, you can only stay for a very limited time. You may visit some scenic and historical spots, sample the local cuisine, and experience local sights and sounds, but time is too short to immerse yourself in the culture.
When you immerse yourself abroad, you will experience a new environment, make new friends, and begin to understand new ways of thinking and living. Immersing yourself in a new culture gives you a chance to be independent, adaptable and be able to learn quickly. In the morning when you open your curtains, you discover new views on the skyline. When you are walking on the streets, you find new sights and sounds around you all the time. Climbing to the top of an ancient monument, learning to cook local food, bargaining at outdoor clothing markets, cycling around the city and seeing and touching all corners of the city--all these will add excitement to your life.

It is an opportunity

Immersing yourself abroad is an opportunity for you to learn a great deal. The experience of learning how to do business in foreign countries first-hand rather than just learning from textbooks is an invaluable asset for your future. It also will be of great help for you to learn a foreign language. If you want to pick up a new language or improve your foreign language skills, there is no better way than living in that foreign country. Immersing yourself abroad also provides you with a chance to experience foreign customs and understand foreign cultures. Furthermore, as the world becomes increasingly interconnected, a global worldview is becoming a more necessary skill. Limiting yourself to one country will make you obsolete in the work force of the future. Foreign studies will definitely give you an edge in the business world.
In addition, immersing yourself abroad is an opportunity for you to expand your horizons. If you immerse yourself abroad, you will better understand other cultures and ways of life. The more you learn, the more you experience, the more you will think about how you live your own life.   

It will be one of the best times of your life

Immersing yourself abroad can be one of the best times of your life. Students will receive a warm welcome from host countries. Outside of school, you can take part in a variety of cultural events and visit significant historical and cultural sites with classmates and locals you will meet. Stroll leisurely through the galleries, taste vegetarian food in temples, appreciate traditional opera or watch acrobatics in local theatres, become acquainted with local fashions, have a pot of tea in a quaint teahouse, take a night cruise, and participate in local festivals. Surely, it will be one of the best experiences you've ever had in a lifetime.
