Studying abroad is no longer just for kids!
Every year more people over 50 who come to learn languages in different parts of the world.
- New York, November 23, 2011 -
The study abroad market is modified each year and adjusts to the changes necessary to meet the demands of its customers, and in this case, the customer is not the typical college student up to a maximum of 25 years old, but an adult between the ages of 50 and 70.
These adult students are looking to learn a language while fully enjoying what another culture and environment can offer.
Previously, study abroad courses were intended for children, adolescents and young adults, but the generations of over 50 year olds now are not the same as they were 20 years ago.
The growth in demand for this type of course is recognized by the language schools abroad, and every day there are more specialized courses for the over 50 crowd.
Students attend class with other students of their age group, which helps them build friendships with others with similar tastes to theirs, and in turn schools prepare social and cultural activities tailored to the needs and desires of these mature students.
Such courses will become a natural part of every school of languages, and future generations of adults over 50 years of age will have similar opportunities to take advantage of learning a language or taking a refresher course.
Students enjoy meeting new people with of a similar age and get to explore a different country and culture.
