Madeline J Nave, Summer 2014 Participant
Four hours of French each weekday sounded like a lot at first, but because of that I learned so much. The fact that I'm almost fluent is the most rewarding part of this trip.

Learning the language is all about the effort you put forth to speak, not necessarily the quality of your French, so don't ever be afraid to try to speak the language. You will make mistakes, and that's okay. Also, dress for a much cooler climate. I brought mostly summer clothes and didn't wear any of them. A good jacket and boots/shoes for the rain are essential.

My favorite part was the tour portion. We were able to truly experience the whole of France and interact with French people all over the northern France.
