When you decide to study for an online degree, normally it is because you don't have enough time or financial resources to go to university. In this case, distance learning education is your best option. But it doesn't mean that you will not have opportunity of meeting other students, like people in the university, because we want to suggest other possibilities to you.
These combine an online degree programme, with travelling in your holidays, or maybe going abroad for an academic semester or an academic year to learn foreign languages in a language school abroad.
Whether it’s a Språkresor in Sweden you’re interested in (and so having the chance to go to fantastic cities such as Stockholm) or a volunteer vacation Spain (with which you won’t just learn a language but team work skills too), learning a language in its native country provides enormous benefit to the learner as it helps them get a deep understanding of the culture and how the language is used by the native people. Furthermore to employers, it demonstrates that the learner has the confidence and independence to go to another country to learn, something invaluable in the work place.
It is a shame how English speaking countries are lagging behind the Europeans. Many German people choose to do some courses each year (be it language course in Canada, the US, the UK or sprachreisen Malta ) and so enhance their business CV and career prospects (not to mention travel plans!). Spanish people’s language learning is on the increase too – with many choosing bi-lingual destinations such as Miami or famed Euro cities (say going to Dublin and doing cursos de inglés en Irlanda whilst going to class and exploring the English capital during the day) And it’s not just learning English either – many people are doing a course and teaching it too! It is definitely something to bear in mind should you already have decent second language skills, not just as a source of income but as a means to travel and interact with other language learners too!
Or if you have ties at home and wouldn’t be able to leave the country for a prolonged period, why not be a host? Imagine having a Spanish person come stay with you to aprender inglés en Inglaterra... You would be helping them speaking English whilst learning about their culture back in Spain and perhaps a little Spanish too! Once you’ve learnt Spanish you can explore everything this wonderful Iberian Peninsula has to offer! From the buzzing capital you can catch a flight to the secluded beaches of the Canary Islands – especially if you are lucky enough to find one of the cheap vuelos Tenerife Madrid!
