Program Reviews:
Laurie Catherine Winkel, Fall 2012 Participant
Living in Angers was definitely unforgettable. The city's remarkable beauty, attractions, and friendliness, along with its proximity to Nantes and Paris was ideal. I was very pleased, too, that most of its inhabitants didn't speak English well--they were both curious about and accommodating to Americans, which made them enthusiastic conversation partners. That really boosted my French skills.

The excursions were amazing and well worth the money! I saw the show of a lifetime at Puy de Fou, for one. They were very illuminating as far as French culture, as well. The CIDEF had many wonderful programs as well for meeting people and discovering Angers. I owe a great many of my "funny language/culture misunderstanding" to our International Nights at Soft Bar in Angers.

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.
