I definitely recommend for anyone who is even thinking of studying abroad to take a leap and go for it! I have no regrets about my experience in France! The first day of classes I made friends immediately and over the course of three weeks I learned so much French! Whether you go in knowing little to none of the language (like myself) or you're fluent or somewhere in between you'll learn so much! Being thrown into the culture was so beneficial and it gave me such a passion for the people and the country! If I had to give a piece of advice, I'd say become spontaneous, try and do things that you wouldn't normally do and not only will you learn so much about the language, you'll learn a lot about yourself.

Studying abroad is the chance of a lifetime! I would do it again in a heartbeat. I challenge every student at Cumberland to think about going. I studied at a small French institute. Each class was separated into different levels; so don’t worry there is a level for everyone. My experience taught me that people all over the world can share so many similar qualities and that it is important to learn a language other than your native tongue. It was exciting to meet so many new friends and be immersed into new cultures other than my own. The teachers are wonderful and eager to help. So expand your horizons because it is an opportunity that you will not regret. The trip will challenge the way you think daily and will be an amazing memory for a lifetime.
