Sending your kids to study abroad can be daunting, so at HSI we want to make sure that it is the right decision for you and your child. We guarantee that it will be an experience incomparable with any other language learning that you child has been exposed to. Learning languages can be one of the most important, yet frustrating, parts of our kids’ education, but they seem to spend hours and hours learning grammar, improving pronunciation, memorizing vocabulary etc. Even using a private tutor or being part of an immersion school back home, can’t compare to the impact of living in the country where the language is spoken.
Being bilingual is a huge advantage in the global marketplace. In addition to the potential economic and social benefits of bilingualism, learning a second language activates different parts of the brain and students who participate in language immersion programs get a cognitive boost. At HSI we offer a unique approach to learning languages where we combine formal lessons, a sports program, and leadership training, so that our students leave feeling better-prepared for their future. HSI staff is committed to offering our students a unique opportunity to improve their Spanish, meet people, boost their confidence, and make them ready for a global, multicultural society.
