How Do I Determine How Long to Study Abroad?
Determining the length of your stay overseas can be a difficult decision. Keep in mind that in intensive language programs, longer is always better in order to gain fluency in the language. With any kind of program, the longer you stay, the deeper your understanding will be of your host culture and you will have more opportunity to form life-long friendships. In addition, many programs give discounts to students who stay for extended programs (discounted second semester on year programs). Since some programs have strict withdrawal policies for those who come home earlier than intended, be sure to carefully check the policies of each program before you make your decision.
