It’s always good to know what others have to say about a product or service. It’s the same in the study abroad industry. Knowing about other peoples opinions and experiences can help you make a decision about where to study or take your next working holiday.
Young people are very mobile these days, taking internships, language courses and university degrees all over the world. Students are not studying just English anymore either; competitive, forward-thinking young adults study languages like Mandarin or Spanish and take professional internships and work programs in countries like China, Ireland, Canada or Argentina! Here’s what a few students have to say about these types of programs.
