World Leader in International Education
Experience in Shanghai has been very different than my American life, but in a GOOD WAY! I never really expected to meet such a diverse group of people learning Chinese (I've met many people from many different countries). I also like how the teachers are so willing to help us and even accompany us to various places.

I feel like I've lived here all my life. My host family, teachers, and neighbors have been looking out for me like their own son. I'm meeting tons of new people and making some new lifelong friends from across the globe. School has been particularly wonderful. It has only been a week and I am already talking up a storm with my friends and host family; my tongue and cheeks are beginning to hurt from all the French I am speaking. Nice has truly been better than I had dreamed.

EF and Mount St Mary College Language Study Abroad Experience

Accelerate your rate of fluency in a second language, cornerstone of international education

Accelerate your rate of fluency in a second language while earning Mount Saint Mary College academic credits.

Global citizenship is this decade's imperative. Employers are increasingly searching for people with international experience and cross cultural competency. A recent CNN article noted fluency in a second language as one of the most important job skills. Fluency in a second language and cross-cultural competency are invaluable assets to remain competitive in the global marketplace and in our increasingly interconnected world.

With this in mind, Mount Saint Mary College offers its students the opportunity to learn a second language in a faster  and more effective way through EF’s International Language Centers abroad, and offering academic credit for these courses. EF’s mission is to break down barriers of culture, language and geography that divide us. Order a brochure to learn more.
