It is an obvious advantage to study foreign languages abroad. Most universities offer full-time programs in language - or just a semester as part of your study program from home. You will also have an unforgettable experience abroad! Do you want to study English in Australia or Spanish in California? Universities emphasize an international environment and you will meet students from all over the world.
When studying a foreign language abroad, you also speak it in your everyday life - and that's the way you learn it. Suddenly you can discuss political issues and small talk without any problems. When you study a language abroad, you learn it faster than if you just study it at home.
