Fantastic Year Abroad Becoming Fluent in French!

When I studied abroad at the AUCP, initially I was supposed to stay just the Fall semester, but I had such a great time that I ended up staying for Spring too. I spent that Summer abroad too!
I really enjoyed my professors and classes. They were so helpful with my French, and it improved a ton. When I left Aix, I spoke French fluently, and people would often say that I sounded like a native speaker! I also met a lot of French students via the AUCP's French Language Exchange. I was able to hangout with French students, see how they lived and learn at the same time. I still keep in touch with my host mom and my french friends from when I was a student. My year at the AUCP was one of the best years of my life, I have no regrets.

What would you improve about this program?
I honestly had a great time, I can't think of anything that I'd want to change.
Yes, I recommend this program
