Be open to meeting people from other countries. Even though there may be a language barrier and it may be difficult, once you break through it will be the most rewarding thing you will have done.

I found the classes and traveling the most rewarding. The classes challenged you to truly speak and listen in French and other languages were prohibited to allow this type of learning. Traveling also served as a huge learning experience by learning to talk to others in different cultures or using different languages and learning about other countries' traditions and ways of life.

My favorite part of this program was the opportunity to meet and interact with people from all around the world! In the classroom, city, and on trips, there are so many opportunities to learn about even more than just the French culture and create memories that'll last a lifetime!
