The program allows you to meet amazing students from all over the world. Students can immerse completely into the language and the culture by living with supportive host families. It's a great way to get out of one's comfort zone and really experience something incredibly new and exciting. Personally, I loved learning French and getting to the level that I could communicate with a whole new population of people fairly easily. This has motivated me to continue to improve my French as well as begin to learn other languages.

Studying abroad in Paris was the greatest decision I have made in my life. It was a phenomenal experience that I could not get any other way. There is so much to learn about through this program: French, the world, but most importantly, yourself, and there is someone to help you every step of the way.  Being in Paris also ade it very easy to travel! I made it to Belgium, Italy, Greece, and England on this trip! If you are even remotely considering applying for this program, do it! There is absolutely no way you will regret it!

I think the most beneficial part about this program was the host families! You get totally immersed in the language and they help you every day. I learned how to use the metro and the trains and do things on my own in Paris. There's so much to do all the time I didn't ever want to sleep! Studying abroad is important because it changes your entire view on life. I thought I knew what I wanted to do with my life before I went, but after going I was opened up to so many different opportunities and connections through people I met halfway across the world.
