Today, eco-tourism plays a significant role in the global tourism and hospitality industry. According to the forecasts of experts from the World Tourism Organization, ecological tourism is one of the five main strategic directions of development for the period until 2020 and in the near future its growth rates will continue to be high.

At the same time, the problems of development of ecological tourism in general and in Russia are still little studied. And we are interested in how ecotourism can affect the conservation of nature.

  • Formulate the concept of ecotourism, basic principles, development features and trends of ecotourism.
  • Analyze the world experience in the development of ecotourism and allocate ecotourism resources in Russia and the UK.
  • Summarize the market and geography of ecotourism.
  • Show cons and pros.

Subject of research: ecotourism in Russia and Great Britain.

Research object: Russia and Great Britain.

Education abroad - what it is and what it is eaten with. The results of our communication with four professionals with extensive experience in sending knowledge-hungry Russians abroad. Contrary to popular belief that educational programs are expensive, prices for many of the options are quite comparable to those for a beach holiday. In the fall-winter season, significant (up to 50%) discounts are offered on short-term courses and even free two-week programs in which the student pays only for accommodation and travel expenses. Unlike regular tours, discounts on educational trips are more often offered with advance bookings. Last-minute orders and rush clearance (last minute) are often the most expensive. In addition, students have the opportunity to partially compensate for travel costs - these are the so-called "Study + work" programs. True, for Russian citizens, legal part-time work during short-term study programs is very limited, but it is still possible - for example, in France and Spain.

Recent trend: if before most of the students went exclusively "for the language", now many see the trip as an interesting alternative way to spend their holidays or vacations. Accordingly, there are programs that combine training with rest and "excursion".

Which countries are most often visited “for education”? Are there any pronounced leading directions and what is the reason for this?

Undoubtedly, the UK is "driving": the British education system has long been a leader in the global education market; about one and a half thousand language schools in the country offer classical English courses to foreigners. Malta is in second place in popularity among young people: the ease of obtaining a visa, guaranteed sun and sea from April to November, as well as a cheerful and democratic international youth "get-together" played a role here. Language schools in Malta have an excellent academic reputation, low prices (compared to the UK) and a wide range of programs.

Trends: in recent years, educational programs in Canada have become increasingly popular - thanks to the readiness of the embassy of this country to issue visas to students. New Zealand and Australia are also on the rise - many Europeans have been studying there for a long time, and now our fellow citizens have begun to join them. There is a growing demand for programs in Germany, France and Spain. The reasons are the increased interest in learning the second and third foreign languages, as well as (in Germany and France) a real opportunity to receive free higher education and scholarships for living.

What are the most popular accommodation options and what are their features?

Homestay accommodation remains the most popular (and affordable) type of accommodation among language school students: daily communication with family members and their acquaintances is very advanced in learning a living language. Many participants in children's summer language programs choose residences - dormitories in boarding schools or universities. Their advantage is great independence and constant communication with peers.

Disadvantages of accommodation in families - most often very modest and monotonous food, the most modest atmosphere in the room, remoteness from the place of study, the inability to invite guests. "Disadvantages" of residences: most of the amenities are on the floor, you have to eat in a cafe or cook yourself, and communication with foreigners, although easier than with "native speakers", is not so useful for intensifying learning.

Another popular option is children's summer camps in residences: the whole day is scheduled, meals are organized and quite varied. Disadvantages: expensive, places in recent years are sorely lacking (you have to book 3-4 months in advance), in some places there is a problem of theft.

What programs are most in demand: for beginners, for intermediate level, for "advanced"?

Most of all programs for the levels "below average" and "intermediate" are in demand. Absolutely "zero" students practically do not go abroad: it is better to get basic knowledge at home, and "native speakers" are not needed for this. There are many requests for the simultaneous study of two languages: Switzerland is traditionally the leader here, but there are options in Canada, Germany and Spain.

Trends: In recent years, clients have shown interest in sports activities or additional courses (business courses, flight attendant courses, design courses, cooking, aromatherapy, etc.).
