Tell us a bit about yourself!
I study Commerce & French at University College Cork (UCC).
Why did you choose France?
It was obligatory given my course, but chose the degree due to love for French language at secondary level.
What are the outcomes from your study programme in France and international experience?
I have broadened m understanding of French culture, improvement of French accent and confidence RE living independently in a foreign country.
Your favorite word in French?
We hope you enjoyed your French culture shock! Any memorable cultural fact, experience?
A not that kind receptionist at my college accommodation.
The soundtrack of your stay in France?
Listened constantly to the Miss Saigon 2014 cast album... Not very French I’m afraid.
Have you brought back a French souvenir with you?
Hmmm, my ski helmet?!
Any French habit you have kept?
