First and foremost, we have an amazing group of students this session! Every student is eager to learn about culture and to improve their French speaking skills.

We have been making the most of the last week to say the least! Working hard in our classes and putting our French to use while visiting grottos, learning to surf, touring Bayonne and museums all capped off with an incredible trip to San Sebastian. We are having an absolute blast!
