When it comes to study holidays, we concentrate almost exclusively on the linguistic aspect which indeed represents a very important value. What I would like to talk to you about today are the implications that affect the personal aspect of enrichment of the person.
So, in my opinion, here are the 3 seeds that our children will take home at the end of their study holiday.
1. The time. Living abroad involves slowing down the fast pace that punctuates our days in Italy, we do not have the stress of having to run from school to the home of grandparents or the other parent, then running to the gym and then again to the other side. of the city to the music room, Saturday catechism, Sunday morning tournament, sporting event or scout. The experiences are punctuated by a slow pace that leaves room for everything and concentrates the possibilities of accessing important things, close and at hand: from the classroom English to that of the theater runs no greater distance than that between the Canteen or the meeting point towards the promenade in the city. We will see some advice on how to survive an English Canteen in the future.
2. Introspection and Self-Esteem. In the suitcase we can take only the essential things. In this article I will give you some advice on what to pack for your study holiday. By removing all the superfluous, only our true selves remain, the person you sometimes didn’t remember being. We realize that we are valid for what we really are and not for the objects we possess, we are pervaded by a sense of freedom from the need to exhibit things and we are strengthened by expressing our personality. Without mom and dad, it will be up to you alone to make the decisions and your confidence will increase dramatically.
3. Creativity and Originality. Unlike most peers, getting to know new places, experimenting with different habits, tasting other foods, meeting people, learning different cultures and ways of behavior, leads to new points of view, new ideas, projects. The journey brings with it a unique mix of emotions that will make you different, inimitable and creative in every field of work. Having to face novelty and some unexpected is a formidable training for a fundamental aspect in life which is the spirit of adaptation.
