Experts believe that if parents decide to send their child to study in an English school, they should start by contacting a counseling or educational agency, which, according to the director of the UK Study Center, “will advise on application deadlines, school selection and provide samples of entrance tests for training and textbooks “. Gabbitas Education is sure that parents will especially need the help of a specialist if they do not speak English.
“Parents who choose not to turn to counselors should not only be fluent in English, but also be brilliant in the subject. The counselor looks at the child’s level of knowledge, notes how he or she expresses his or her thoughts in English, and offers several options. After all, a child may not be accepted to school, “said the deputy director of the Department of Education Abroad BSI Group. “Every school tries to select a student better, failures are most often due to the fact that there was a stronger candidate,” explained Julia Nikishena.
The expert is convinced that before sending a child to study in Britain for a long time, it is also better for parents to find out how the child feels away from home. According to her, summer schools for learning English in Britain are suitable for this.
