If you ask a question, you need a question mark at the end.

Both are wrong. I'm not sure what you're trying to say. Please provide a complete sentence.

Sorry for not using a question mark

A studying abroad course is a good way to learn a language

or

A study abroad course is a good way to learn a language

Are both of the above okay?

OK. You don't want those. Here are a few ways you can say it:

Studying abroad is a good way to learn a language.
A good way to learn a language is to study abroad.
Taking a course abroad is a good way to learn a language.
A good way to learn a language is to take a course abroad.

Thank you CJ for your answer.

Can you tell me if the two I wrote are grammatically correct?

I wrote this: You don't want those.

When I write that, I mean that the sentences are not grammatically correct.

Your phrases are much better but I only asked because I have often seen,study/studying abroad courses and I've also seen studying abroad programs.

OK. I Googled this, and I see that it's used in ads. I think those combinations of words are primarily used when an institution wants to advertise courses and programs.

They most often occur with proper nouns which reveal the "brand name" of the program, for example, the Berkeley Study Abroad courses, the EECS Study Abroad Program, or IES Abroad courses. I did not see any with "studying abroad courses".

Within the literature of such organizations, the form "study abroad" is incorporated into sentences as a modifier. I consider this a specialized expression in English.

However, you will find that most of the text in those advertisements uses only phrases like "study abroad" or "studying abroad" not followed by "courses" or "programs", which is more like standard English.
