My six weeks in Paris were anything from what I expected but completely amazing nonetheless. It was truly a learning experience through and through, I was constantly learning the language, the environment and culture, and also about myself and how to push myself out of my comfort zone.
The highlight of my trip, among many amazing experiences, was building a relationship with my host family throughout the six weeks. They were so kind and I learned so much from speaking to them at our weekly dinners. I definitely plan on continuing to study French and also continuing to push myself out of my comfort zone to experience new and rewarding things.
My advice to anyone considering to study abroad is to GO FOR IT, this is something you will not forget. It won't be a walk in the park, but you will learn and experience things you've never imagined before.
