Visualizing Study Abroad: Three Things to Know

Infographics are always a fun and useful way to summarize a few quick facts visually -- for many people, it's an easier way to absorb information. That's why we sometimes like to mix things up here at The Exchange Mom, by using visuals such as the one below. 

So here are a few such quick facts for you to know about the benefits of high school study abroad programs!

  • You can learn a new language! There are so many reasons why this is a good idea. For some programs, you do need to have a working knowledge of the local language. For others, you can learn as you go. (Our son did a one semester program in Ghana, for example, where most of the people he dealt with spoke English. But that does not take away from the cultural experience he had there.)
  • You will have something that will stand out in college applications! Always a good idea to have something a little bit "different" to make you stand out from the thousands of other high school students applying to college.
  • So many opportunities are available, at different pricing levels. This where research on your end will pay off: research the country and area where you want to study as well as the programs that are available.
