Many parents start planning their family vacation in advance. If there are children in the family, the choice of destinations might be limited.
Besides vacation, some parents might be wondering where are the best places for the family to spend time together that benefit both themselves and their children? In recent years, more and more families factor in the benefit of childhood education into their family travel plans. A lot of families are now traveling together to learn English or any other language while having a vacation overseas. Perhaps it might sound like something new to some new families, but it had already been done for quite sometime over the years.
Let’s look at the reasons why it might be attractive for the family to go for a vacation together while studying English.
It is obvious that knowledge of several foreign languages increases the child’s chance to build an early career and become successful in the future.
It is advisable to start learning foreign languages from an early age because during that time the baby has the most active memory. They can easily remember words and phrases in a foreign language. A child at this age is less afraid of making a mistake than an adult, so the children will learn to speak the language naturally. Also, it is easier for a child to learn the correct pronunciation, since at the same time he masters the natural sound of his native language. The main advantage of the English programs for families is that they take place directly in English-speaking countries that increase the effectiveness of studying.
