More from Alex:
"I would recommend a student choose VU for French because of the tremendous study abroad program. I studied abroad in La Rochelle, France and I would recommend this experience to everyone. It is one thing to learn the language in a classroom and to speak with others who are not native French speakers. It is a completely different learning experience when you are living in another country having to interact with people of a different culture speaking a different language. While studying abroad you learn the little things about the language and people and that truly gives you an appreciation for a different culture."
