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.

There is not a lot of homework, so spend your free time wisely. Keep busy, especially in the first month, to keep from getting homesick. France is very rainy and cold in February, so spend time with your host family, try to cook some warm French food and try your hand at reading a novel in French when the weather is bad.

Go during the Fall. The weather there is much nicer and there are much more stuff going on in general.
