Whether you have just a week or an entire summer, you can start speaking like a native by enrolling in a language school in your country of choice. Options vary, depending on your skill level and desires: total immersion with a local host family, morning classes at a language school (leaving afternoons and evenings free to test your daily lessons), or an intensive course that aims to give you an international silver tongue in a matter of weeks.

Countless options are possible, from month-long African photo safaris to week-long photography tours of Ireland, New Zealand, or Morocco, and all skill levels—from novices with their first Nikons to experienced photographers anxious to perfect their craft—will discover new techniques.
