Being able to communicate and interact with the locals is of the utmost importance. Abante International works with local contacts from each country involved in the program, in order to provide adequate interpreters to help translate. Additionally, Abante International will offer appropriate language courses (i.e. Spanish 101 or German 101, among others) as part of their curriculum in order to fulfill the academic language requirement.
It is common that students will feel intimidated by the language barrier at first, however, we believe the exposure to another culture where another language other than the students first language is spoken, will serve to take them out of their comfort zone and brake down barriers that as a result will help them build new and long lasting relationships. This will also help expand their world view and spark an interest in acquiring a second or third languages.
