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.

I learned to not take things too personally and to have an open mindset. Many times people can come off as rude or indifferent, but that's just the way the culture is. Also, listen carefully to what the program directors and teachers tell you because they are only trying to help even if it creates more of a hassle for you.

The most rewarding parts were the social interactions I had while out in the city and the interactions I had with the professors.
