What is a course in language studies?  A course in this area may be taught online or in a classroom setting, and it may be conducted in a country where the language is commonly spoken.

The course may emphasize a particular area of language skills, such as spoken or written language or the specific vocabulary of a type of work environment.

Students who enroll in a course of language studies typically learn to speak and write more effectively in a non-native language, an important skill for gaining work in another country. They may also learn to better understand the cultural customs of a foreign country, allowing for better integration at work and at home.

The expenses of a language course depend on a variety of factors, including the country of study and the duration of the program. Interested scholars should contact each school to learn more about the costs of each course option.

Discover your Origins

Offered by our school in Milan

Italian history books are often full of images of entire families, mass-moving from Italy to foreign countries, hoping to find a welcoming city where to work and raise their children. We all remember the great migrations to North America (the United States and Canada), South America (Brazil, Argentina, and Venezuela) and faraway Australia. Many families also moved to Europe, to neighboring Switzerland or Germany and the United Kingdom.

In order to still “feel at home", Italian emigrants went on talking to their children and descendants in their mother tongue - from the dialect to the modern language - telling them stories and traditions about their place of origin.... [-]

Best Courses in Language Studies 2020.

Studying English is like learning to play a musical instrument. Whether you want to learn how to speak English or how to improve reading

English, the more you practice - especially spoken English, the better you get at all the other skills. It's a simple principle. It's still a lot of work, but if you follow that, you will be successful.

Most ESL classes spend too much time learning English grammar. It's true that grammar is important, but learning language is like learning to swim. You can't do it by reading a book -- you have to practice!

GEOS' ESL courses are designed to give students more practice. GEOS students have English classes every day for just Speaking and Listening. Because GEOS has more English speaking classes, our students learn English faster. ... [-]
