Moving abroad is a huge step (in the right direction). That being said, we know from experience, it is not an easy process. Our mission is to make life abroad simple. We want to help students like us take a chance and live their dreams, unencumbered by bureaucracy and/or anxiety.
We’ve lived it time and time again, we feel your pain, and we’re here to help!
Let’s Get it Started in Here
In case you still aren’t convinced, here are 5 good reasons to move abroad
1. Obviously, to Have Fun!
Regardless of the initial motivation you might have to move abroad, you will have the time of your life! By meeting new people, exploring new cultures, languages, and sex stuff (don’t be shy), you will discover all the glorious ways to enjoy life as an expat.
2. To Meet New People
The people you meet throughout your life bring so much value. New experiences, new perspectives, and connection all around the globe enable a human experience matched only by magic. The EIS Project Executive Team met while living in Paris, and now we love each other and yell at each other on conference calls all the time! Who doesn’t want that?
3. To Discover New Cultures
Going out of your comfort zone will challenge you, which is ultimately how you grow and flourish. Living in a different country is more complicated than one would expect. The cultural divide and (potential) language barrier can be seen as one of two things: a threat or an opportunity. We believe in choosing the latter, always.
4. To Learn New Languages
It’s no secret that the best way to learn a language is to live in the country where it is spoken and force yourself to practice (unless you’re the kind of American Maria is, then you’ll perpetually wonder if the place has an English menu because you’re hungry and tired and upset that nowhere ever puts enough salt on their fries damnit). Of course, learning a language comes with practice, but is paired with cultural immersion. Just imagine your spot on Parisian accent after your time abroad. Oui, it’s Hilarious.
5. To Widen your Skill Set
When you move abroad, you’re throw into independence, and figure out how to navigate myriad situations – alone. It is, undoubtedly, one of the best ways to become the best version of yourself. How to handle stress under pressure, how to grocery shop, how you seduce someone in a foreign country, and finally, how to finally find the place with perfectly salted fries (if you find it please email us, meaning Maria, the American, the details).
