Nationalities

International language schools are attended by people of all different nationalities in varying proportions according to the destination and the time of year.

Language study trips are a suitable opportunity to discover other cultures and other nationalities. You will get to know people from all over the world, so take out your address book and keep those contacts from just about everywhere without forgetting to give your own contact details!

The bigger the school is, the more diverse the nationalities. The big advantage is meeting people from all different countries, from all different backgrounds and of all different ages but the disadvantage is that the atmosphere is more impersonal than in small schools where everyone knows each other after just one week.

It is necessary to know that there is generally a fairly good representation of native English speakers in countries which propose language studies abroad, just like French, German, Korean and Japanese speakers. Nevertheless, you will never be more than 2-3 students who speak the same native language in a class.
