Studying abroad is a wonderful way to travel while you`re young. It builds independence, gives you numerous life skills. It gives you the opportunity to travel to a new country learn a new language and a new way of life. You can stay there for a semester, six months, a summer, a couple months or a full year. You can study abroad during highschool, in college or a gap year in between. You typically stay with a host family.
I`m currently planning to study abroad my junior year of high school in Thailand through ASSE. Other high school study abroad programs include AFS, Rotary and YFU. There are also many scholarships that you can apply for.
I think it is a wonderful opportunity and is much less expensive than traveling for that amount of time would generally be.
What do you think? Would you ever travel abroad?
