FLSAS has been arranging study abroad programs, both foreign language immersion and cultural immersion for over 35 years.
Study Abroad in Foreign Language Immersion
FLSAS specializes in programs that emphasize improving foreign language proficiency. Recognizing that people – of all ages – have only a limited amount of time to learn, intensive programs offered make maximum use of limited time. They offer flexible schedules for independent / unaccompanied / individual participants as well as small groups.
FLSAS makes every effort to select only quality foreign language immersion and cultural immersion programs. We want quality programs to be our trademark.
FLSAS also recognizes that foreign language learning is just as much an out of classroom experience as it is an in classroom experience. Active Language Learning is an important component of all programs. Programs combine language study with your personal interests. You learn a foreign language more quickly when you are participating in activities you enjoy or discussing common interests, interacting with new found friends.
Although the emphasis of FLSAS Study Abroad is on the practical application of language learning, depending on the program, cultural activities, leisure activities and sports may be included.
FLSAS offers different options for all age groups and interests: seniors, adults (including executives & professionals), college, high school & middle school students and parents with children.
Over 25 languages are offered including: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, Chinese, English and many LCTL Less Commonly Taught Languages.
Study Abroad in Cultural & LifeStyle Immersion Programs
Over the years, many people (adults) requested the opportunity to have a just a plain homestay in a foreign country without the language lessons. The request came from former students, teachers who wanted a cultural out of classroom experience, parents of students who studied abroad…. and many others who just wanted a more meaningful vacation.
As the world gets smaller and more homogenized, many travelers want to experience the differences that still exist. Cultural Immersion HomeStay Abroad / Cultural Travel was created with that idea in mind. It is a more engaging way to travel; a gentler way to be a tourist. This is not a volunteer program; it is a program for more sophisticated travelers who have already done the tourist things.
This program can be done in about 40 countries. A good deal of advance notice is required for some countries.
Families / friends may participate together in the same program. Not all programs are available in all locations.
You may combine programs: 2 weeks in one program, one week in another, etc. You may combine more than one country or more than one city.
We look forward to arranging a foreign language immersion or cultural lifestyle immersion experience for you.
