Why do you want to learn a language? Is it for business reasons? Are you relocating? Or do you simply want to get by on holiday?
If you have the time to devote to a 1 or 2-week immersive language course it will pay off massively. You need to be totally committed to learning the language so that you can make the most of the experience. There is no denying that it will be hard work but the result will be amazing and you will have fun while you are learning.
Intensive Immersion courses usually happen over 1 or 2 weeks in the country where the language is spoken. You may stay with a family or in a hotel and some courses offer leisure time activities too.
Why should you sign up to an Immersive language course?
You are learning the language more intensively and frequently compared to doing 1.5 hours once a week. This means you will learn more in a short space of time and retain what you have learned because you are practising every day. It also means you don’t have to wait a whole week before getting answers to your questions.
There is no excuse not to practise what you have learned in class each day with the locals. Not only can you brush up on your speaking skills but also reading and listening. You will find yourself in real-life situations where you need to use the language.
3. You can’t revert back to your native language
There will be little opportunity to revert back to using your native language which means you have to practise with your new language.
4. Less time required
With an immersive course you can compact a 6 month weekly course into only 1 week of immersive training. So if you are short of time and eager to learn as much as possible as quickly as possible then an Immersion course is the way forward.
Look out for courses that are 1-2-1 and tailor-made to suit your requirements as these will be the difference between learning the general language and making your experience even more personal and beneficial. You will be able to learn specific vocabulary, target your weak areas and focus on Business language if necessary.
6. It is fun!
As well as having fun during the classes you may also be able to do fun excursions from your location and experience some local culture while you are learning.
