Answer:

You can take short language courses abroad when you are quite young. For example Ashville Harrogate offer English language courses in the summer for students aged 6-18. Courses are 1-3 weeks long.

To study abroad alone for a longer period of time you will have to be older than 13. The age limit for high school exchange programs are usually 15. To study abroad at colleges and universities you should have finished high school so then you would usually be 18+. However age limits vary by country.
