A typical desire for parents all over the world is for their children to be successful adults, in every sense of the word. This begins with a quality education, but have you stopped to consider carefully what are the characteristics you expect of a proper education? In the end, what is the objective of a quality education? How should it be measured? Some research suggests that, if measured in terms of future life outcomes and long term adult results, education should emphasize building some crucial life skills, just as much as a traditional knowledge base. If you look closely, most pedagogical models tout quality in terms only of teaching traditional methods, but what about those skills that every adult should have to be successful in life?

 

This is why the Young Leaders School offers an innovative teaching model that not only emphasizes traditional knowledge acquisition, but also essential real life skills, such as public speaking, leadership, persuasiveness, and quick learning. The school offers several different programs to tackle each of these skills. Take for example the Full Science Experience program, designed to ignite the natural curiosity in the mind of your child, or the Ultimate Public Speaking program, designed to teach Public Speaking for Kids and instill their confidence conveying their ideas to an audience.

 

 

Because your child deserves the very best chance of success in life, choose a school that teaches real life valuable lessons of skills and abilities that your child will apply throughout his or her life.

A study abroad program is a unique and treasured experience for any young student. If on top of everything else the program destination is a culturally rich and beautiful country with astonishing views and an amazing quality of life, then all the elements come together to make it a once in a lifetime opportunity for anyone. France student travel is one such experience that not only provides personal and mental enrichment to the students, but also broadens their perspective and opens their eyes to a greater and more meaningful understanding of different cultures.

VIE France has over forty years of experience as a provider and organizer of study abroad programs exclusively in France. They have successfully served thousands of students and their teachers. Their programs are very complete, to make for a smooth and memorable experience for all involved, from the students to the organizing teachers to the parents. VIE France strives to provide a full immersion experience not only in the French language, but also in French culture and daily life with services like IfOnly, among others.

Their trademark Family Stay feature ensures this goal. Family Stay is similar to home stay in typical studying abroad experiences, except that hosts are families that are not paid and are required to have a son or daughter in the same age range as the travelling abroad student. This helps students going abroad to feel more comfortable and at ease with their hosts families and to have an easier, more relaxed stance when practicing their French language skills.
