Language Lovers and Study Abroad – it’s a match made in heaven! The chance to learn or improve one’s knowledge of a particular language among native speakers while gaining cultural insight can be the experience of a lifetime. And here at Lexiophiles we know a thing or two about it. Our “Top 10 list” for each of the 9 languages we explored is your guide to the best study abroad programs available in countries that speak that language.
Collectively, our contributors have studied abroad in over 20 countries on 5 continents – many of us more than once. Each is a better linguist and a more well-rounded individual thanks to his or her time spent immersed in another culture, which is why we want the experience to be as accessible as possible to anyone interested.
One of the hardest parts of the decision to study abroad is selecting the right program for you. There are a myriad of choices out there, and it can be an overwhelming task to sift through and find the best ones. For this reason, we scoured the internet and compiled a list of the top 10 programs for learning each of our native languages based on a numerical rating system (described in more detail here). Our lists contain programs suitable for every language lover – from beginners to experienced scholars, secondary school pupils to university students – we’ve included something for everyone.

Good luck, and bon voyage!
