Nationality : Jamaican
Country in which you worked as a Language Assistant/Teacher : Strasbourg, France (amazing city!) How The Program Helped Your Language Development : Omg where do I start? It gave me the immersion and confidence that I needed to practice my French. It was living a real life practical. In school we learn about things like buying a train ticket, filling out forms, ordering at a restaurant etc and boy did they come in handy.
Any other comments? It’s a really wonderful experience. Live in the moment, don’t be afraid to make mistakes or sounding silly. Most of the French people I interacted with loved that I was trying to speak French and they often found my accent cute so right worry about that.
