Subject: ESL study abroad
Question: I would like to know how an experience of Study Abroad (Erasmus, Private Schools,etc.) affects the learning of English as a Second Language, or of the language of the country where the student decides to go. Thank you, Elena
Reply: The best answer to such a general question is that it depends: on the age of the student, the length of stay, plus other factors such as the sheer amount and quality of exposure Generally, it provides an enormous boost, though.
