I learned a lot of familiar conversational French that was very current because I learned it from French people living in France. I can hold a conversation with a French person and they don't have to change the way they speak for me to understand.

My favorite part of the program was definitely living with my host mom. She didn't speak more that 4 or 5 words of English, but she loved to talk, so my French improved dramatically. In addition, she is quite an incredible lady and had a lifetime's worth of experiences to share.

I learned the value of being immersed in a completely foreign environment and how that changes you as a citizen of the world.
