Review Your Program

Paris is such a wonderful city, studied abroad in Paris is one of the rightest things I did in my life.

On-site administration of your program

I strongly recommend host family! They are very nice. Most important, they cooked the best.

I miss french toast so much!

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes

Finances

* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

I spent more because I treat this as a travelling. However, I believe this program provide a very easy budget if you want to save money.

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Choose a home stay, then you don't need to pay extra fees for breakfast and dinner.

0 = No encouragement, 5 = frequent encouragement to use the language
