I’ll be studying at the Université Laval for a little over five weeks! It is the oldest French-speaking university in North America, so it only fits that I am going there to improve my French. I will be living with a host family to increase my fluency. Right now, my French is decent, but I have a lack of confidence in my speaking, so this will (hopefully!) be a great help. I can’t wait!!!
Of course, I am extremely nervous. What if I can’t communicate at all? What if I fail my classes? What if I don’t make any friends and the five weeks are spent in solitude?! I know it may sound trivial, because this is a fantastic, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I really have no right to be worried, but I think nervousness is acceptable. Still, the nerves are coupled with pure excitement!! I can’t wait!!
Have any of you studied abroad or gone abroad in general? Have any tips? I’d love any & all input!
