4 Questions to Ask when Choosing a Spanish Studies Abroad Program for Students

For teachers at high schools and universities across the country, it’s important to provide a fulfilling learning experience for each student. It’s the reason why many are now looking into school trips that will allow their students to further their Spanish studies abroad in countries such as Costa Rica. But before booking their trip, teachers must plan the process carefully. And so, within this latest post, we’ll take a look at the questions to ask when organizing student groups for Spanish studies abroad.

1. Do You Offer a Range of Accommodation Options?

Each study group will be unique in terms of their accommodations requirements. One group might prefer to study while directly in communication with Spanish language speakers and stay in their home, and another might prefer the comfort of a hotel during their first time in the country. It’s important to review the range of accommodation options the study program provides before choosing the best option for students.

2. Do You Offer Volunteer Opportunities?

Beyond studying within the country, the school should also provide a range of additional activities for visitors to enjoy. An example is volunteer opportunities. The language training school should be able to build a program that includes volunteer work as part of the learning process. This can help the student to learn more on the culture and the country’s environment while supporting the country’s future.

3. Does the School offer Individualized Training?

It’s important the school caters their language training to each student committing to Spanish studies abroad. The school should be able to personalize their services to the individual student and showcase how they will meet each student’s learning requirements as part of their program. The school should also be able to show they employ a large number of instructors for each small number of students, so that each Spanish language student gets the training they require.

4. Does the School Support University Accreditation?

For university students, it’s critical to choose a Spanish studies abroad program that allows them to transfer their credits to a leading university. Teachers should discuss university accreditation with the school’s team directly and determine whether the credits students achieve can be transferred. By providing an accredited program, teachers can help students move forward with their education.
