A student studying abroad with Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA): Dijon and Paris - French Language and Culture Program
A deeper understanding of a different culture and a more nuanced understanding of my target language. Totally worthwhile. - Stephen F. Austin State University View Entire Review
June 16, 2015 No Regrets!
Oh my, so much! I gained a whole new view on the world! Coming back home wasn't the same!

Past Review Fantastic!
It was definitely worthwhile, and I will never forget this experience. - Stephen F. Austin State University View Entire Review
I learned the french and also a little of European culture. It was very worth the money. - Stephen F. Austin State University View Entire Review
I gained greater knowledge in some grammatical concepts, but not many, and not really to a practical extent as a result of absolute disorganization. No, this particular academic program was not worthwhile to me, I enjoyed the independent aspects of the program and time spent with my host family, but the academics were fruitless.... - Stephen F.

Past Review Vive La France
I gained a new perspective on French culture and lifestyle. By the end of the trip, I was acclimated to the French way of life and had a little culture shock in returning to the United States. - Stephen F. Austin State University View Entire Review
The experience was very worthwhile. The program accustomed me to speaking and hearing French all the time instead of only in the classroom. - Stephen F. Austin State University View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. I learned so much about the culture and language such as the slang used, that I would have never gotten in any class room. - Stephen F. Austin State University View Entire Review

About

SFA’s summer program in France offers students the opportunity to improve their French language skills and experience contemporary French culture first hand, both inside and outside the classroom. For the first three weeks, students will live with a host family in Dijon, allowing them to interact with native French speakers on a daily basis. In the mornings, after enjoying a croissant or fresh bread with jam with their families, students will attend classes taught by native speakers. Two afternoons a week, students will go on excursions, exploring the city of Dijon and the region of Bourgogne. Students will spend the last week of the program in Paris, where they will visit museums, historical sites, the theater, and take a tour of the Seine on a bâteau mouche. This program will be much more than a trip to France; it will be an educational experience from which students will profit linguistically, culturally, and personally for a lifetime.
