10 Places to Study English this Summer
What are your summer plans in 2017?
Why not make it count and explore the world while gaining a new language – a skill that will prove valuable for the rest of your life. And that doesn’t mean you'll have to be in a classroom, the benefits of studying abroad mean you’ll be surrounded by the new language you are studying. Learn the vocabulary for food and how to order in a restaurant and then use those skills outside of the classroom as you soak up the outside world around you.
Choose from over 40 schools in beautiful locations around the world – pick from the diverse cities of the USA and Canada, the history and tradition of the UK and Ireland, or the sunny shores of Australia and New Zealand. Take a look at summer through the eyes of previous Kaplan students.
