Why English Language is important for studying abroad

Thursday - May 16, 2013

If you decide to study abroad, there is one thing you need to know before embarking on this adventure – English language is the most important factor which will determine if you are or not eligible for a study abroad program.

There are different tests that you could be taking before getting the green light for studying abroad. For example the IELTS, TOEFL, EST, or Cambridge ESOL; however a lot of universities provide prospective students admission tests which will be in English. If you are a student and do not know the language of the country that you are going to study, then you should find a way to learn either the language of that country or the English language (if you do not know it). But do not panic, because in most of the countries that allow study abroad programs, there are different courses for students. In this little guide, I will try to be more specific on how to find a good language course abroad.

Learning English Abroad 

If you still think that learning the language before applying for a study abroad program is not important, then think again. The language is one of the main factors that most of students fail to pass the tests to study abroad. Firstly, if you are not good in the language of the country that you will be studying… well, that’s a bummer. Because during the visa test, they will test your English language skills, so it is very important to have a good knowledge of the English language.

However, if you are a student who would like to study English language abroad, you should only pass the basic test of English language and then you are good to go.

How important is to know the language?

Knowing the language is pretty important. Firstly when you meet new people, it will help you communicate and be more friendly with them. Just imagine yourself in a conversation with someone from a completely unknown country, how can you communicate? If you do not know his/her mother tongue, then English would be the best option! Also in the classes, it is very important to know the language that the lectures are held, because if you don’t, you will not be able to be prepared for your exams, and so you will not be satisfied at all with your achievements.

Language is a very important factor when it comes to studying abroad, if you do not have a good knowledge of one of international languages, than you should take courses, listen to music (in the language that you are trying to learn), watch movies, and practice it with someone who has a good knowledge on it. Remember, language is very important when it comes to study abroad in another country, if you do not know the language, it would be pretty hard to meet with new people, make new friends, and be successful during lectures.
