It changes your perspective on the world.
It changes how you view yourself.
92% of EF travelers feel more comfortable in new and different cultural settings.
By raise of hands, who has traveled outside of the US? Who has been abroad? Think about the experiences you had and what you took away from them. Heres a quick video that illustrates the beauty of traveling and the effects it has on these kids. We live in such a blessed time in the world where traveling is easy. So many people wait till they are older to travel, and realize they wished they had done it sooner. This could change your kids decisions for college and career. Traveling to Uruguay is what convinced me I wanted to teach Spanish, and culture and share my experieces with the youth. And in the least it is SOOOO FUN!
HOW IS TRAVELING WITH EF EDUCATIONALLY AND CULTURALLY BENEFICIAL?
The best teacher is real-life experience.It brings the culture and language to life!Finally the students are seeing it, eating it, breathing it, speaking it, experiencing it
The grand epiphanyThey finally get it because they are surrounded by it, they are living it.It promotes understanding, cultural respect, language learning and global citizenship.
Appetizing college applicants and employeesYou will acquire skills that make you marketable: communication and global competence.PS. I will write a letter of recommendation for every kid who comes.
Gains in confidenceNothing builds greater confidence in a person than getting them out of their comfort zone. Navigate new experiences and adapt to change with confidence.
Secret Life of Walter Mitty
Share where Ive been and how it opened my eyes and my perspective on the world and acceptance of other cultures and belief systems: Mxico, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil, England, Spain. Helped me get outside of my comfort zone, gave me the travel bug, I got to practice and use my Spanish, made me grateful for what I have back at home. We take so much for granted. We see how others live and are happy with so little. We see the beauty in our differences. This is what we mean when we say these tours are educationally and culturally enriching experiences.
