Mary-Ann - Intensive French in New Caledonia

Bachelor of Arts
January 2017

My experience

The teaching crew during my exchange experience were brilliant. We had marvellous teachers who were very devoted to our learning. I learnt more French in these 3 weeks than in the past 2 years. The quality of teaching was remarkable and I thoroughly enjoyed every class.

New Caledonia is a beautiful country. I had the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful beaches, swim in the clearest water, and marvel at breathtaking views, for 3 whole weeks. My time on this exchange was quite literally; French, beach, sleep, repeat.

The host families of my experience were wonderful. As part of the family, I learnt so much through their patience and willingness to help. My favourite memory was going to their house on the river and managing to fit canoeing, boat rides, snorkelling, and 4-wheel driving all into the one day. I recommend this experience to everybody!
