Travelling off the beaten path - language study for mature adults October - March
One of the best times to take a learning vacation to beat the crowds and save on travel expenses is during the technically 'off season' between October and March. For mature adults, going during this time periodusually means lower airfares, sometimes cheaper program costs - and almost always cheaper alternative lodging costs, more peers your age in classes abroad - and likewise more cultural activities geared for mature students.
Some of the best programs for mature adults allow you to get away from mass tourism and spend more time amongst the people in your host country, a true immersion experience. All of the schools listed below are just a few of these smaller schools with very good language programs in areas with less tourism during the off season - and allow you a real and personal insight into local people, customs and traditions not as often observed during the more hectic, busy times of year.
