Madeleine - 2018

My favourite memory from this experience was when France won the World Cup and I was able to celebrate with the locals, my host family and friends from the university. It was amazing to see their excitement in supporting their country's team. I really felt immersed in French culture. I also really enjoyed being able to visit nearby towns and attractions on the weekend and spending time with my host family.
