Study Abroad

We strongly recommend students to study abroad for one or two semesters, ideally at a university or college in the United States.

A study abroad experience, either in the USA or Canada, Europe, or anywhere else in the world, is extremely important for improving your language skills, deepening your understanding of the United States or any other country, and experience a society different from your own. You will learn to act independently, meet different challenges, and integrate into a new culture and community. You will encounter new people and fellow exchange students from around the world as well as become acquainted with a different study and learning environment. It is an experience that will definitely change your life. Furthermore, employers of all stripes expect you to have lived overseas for a substantial period of time, for all the reasons mentioned above.

If you are a student at ASL and are planning to go abroad, be sure to check out our detailed resources under Studying -> Study Abroad.
