Language travel and social media

Tiffany Harrison – Outreach Manager,


We all know that social media is fully integrated with daily life for most young people; it not only shapes how they travel, but the ways that they gather information and prepare for travel. Learning a language abroad has to do with real-life immersion, so are photostreams, reviews, ratings, and smartphone booking apps having an impact on language study travel?

During this session we will take a look at some specific social media trends and explore what these mean for the future of language travel. We will also offer tips on how to best utilise social media tools to engage young language-learning travellers.


As the Outreach Manager for, Tiffany Harrison manages the organisation’s extensive social media communities, has implemented a variety of successful online campaigns, handles press inquiries, is consistently active with international education listservs, and coordinates content for the GoAbroad Blog.

She has presented at a variety of events within international education, focusing on the intersection of brand management and online marketing as it relates to social media and technology, as well as methods for translating the student experience.
