I felt like a movie star taking London’s famous red bus to school everyday! At first my parents hesitated about letting me study abroad, but after meeting with the staff of GoGlo English they felt comfortable. After I returned my parents even said I seemed more mature than before. I now find myself speaking English even at home, and I also finished my first English book. Besides improving my language skills, I made friends from all over the world, and I keep in touch with some of those people even now. I would tell anyone who is thinking about studying abroad to go.

I gained a lot more confidence in my English speaking skills because of going abroad. Until you practice English with native speakers you will never know if you can truly use the language to communicate. It is easy to be confident practicing with people in your local school but it is so different speaking with native speakers with different accents. I also became much more independent after my trips abroad and able to take care of things on my own. If  I needed help with anything unexpected, however, the GoGlo English staff were like second parents I could rely on for anything.

Visiting Ireland was the first time I traveled without my parents. I was surprised at how many people I talked to that I would have never met otherwise.

Visiting Ireland was the first time I traveled without my parents. I was surprised at how many people I talked to that I would have never met otherwise, which has made me more open-minded. I enjoyed the trip so much I went abroad again with GoGlo English to London. My host family was very welcoming and I keep in touch with them even today. Overall, I enjoyed both my trips and I am confident learning English will open more opportunities for me in the future for work and travel.

One of my favorite memories of studying English was cycling across the Golden Gate Bridge to Tiburón and catching the sights, sounds and smells of San Francisco.

One of my favorite memories of studying English was cycling across the Golden Gate Bridge to Tiburón and catching the sights, sounds and smells of San Francisco. I could not have had experiences like these were it not for GoGlo English. I had seen American shows and movies but it was only by living in the US that I really absorbed the culture of the country. It is truly incredible how traveling can change your global perspective and make you more self confident -- which I believe is a must to becoming a strong English speaker.

My English was not very advanced before I went to Ireland, but despite this the locals and my teachers helped me a lot and I was able to communicate with people. I had such a great experience I recommended the program to my niece who also studied abroad through GoGlo English. Fun Fact: My teacher Emma recommended a whisky distillery which I loved visiting. Now I only drink this brand of whisky!

One thing that I learned from studying English abroad that I wouldn’t have otherwise was practical skills like how to use public transportation, ask for directions, and understand different accents. My vocabulary has also improved greatly. GoGlo English took the learning outside of the classroom through activities incorporating the city, such as asking strangers for directions. I have had such good experiences with GoGlo English that I am now going on my third trip with the company.

My cousin studied English abroad through GoGlo English and had a fantastic experience, which encouraged my parents to send me abroad as well. During the trip the GoGlo English staff not only helped me with logistics but also with other aspects of traveling that people don’t think about, such as getting homesick. It’s because of their caring attitude that I would recommend GoGlo English to study abroad.

I was hesitant at first to send my son abroad, but I changed my mind after speaking with parents whose children had gone on trips organized through GoGlo English. My son was also a little reluctant to go abroad, but when he returned he was very happy with the experience he had and the people he had met. Living with an Irish family not only gave him new life experiences, but also made him more responsible and cultured. Without English, many jobs will be closed to children, so it is important they start learning the language as early as possible.

Mercé was the youngest person in her group to go abroad, which naturally made us (the parents) hesitant. We were immediately impressed with the GoGlo English staff’s professionalism.

We were immediately impressed with the GoGlo English staff’s professionalism when we met them, and they updated us daily on what the children were doing which gave us great peace of mind. When my daughter came back she told us she wished she could have stayed longer. Apart from learning English, Mercé had fantastic cultural experiences such as befriending a local fisherman and visiting an Irish pub -- experiences she could not have had without studying abroad. Seeing Mercè so happy and confident when speaking English when she returned made the whole experience worthwhile for us as a family.

My daughter’s experience studying English abroad was well-organized. She had an instructor and group leader available at all times.

We had heard positive comments from others who had studied abroad through GoGlo English, and my daughter’s was no different. Her experience made her a true life-long learner who is eager to take on new experiences. For our children, the jobs of the future will almost all rely on English, and I am convinced studying English abroad will only add to their development and future career prospects.

There is no doubt that English has become the second language in most countries, and I knew if my daughter learned English she would be able to communicate with even more people and broaden her mind.

There is no doubt that English has become the second language in most countries, and I knew if my daughter learned English she would be able to communicate with even more people and broaden her mind. What I didn’t expect was how much the experience would help her overcome her shyness and talk to friends and family members at home. Learning English abroad also made her more independents and responsible with her belongings. Overall, it was a great experience both for her and for us.
