"The experience in general was very positive. Perhaps, what I liked the most is the city itself, the people very warm and there is a lot to visit in the same city and also nearby. I still have a lot to discover and is most likely to return soon. I have learned Portuguese, no doubt, in the short time I've been there (two weeks), I believe to have made a lot of progress and now back in France, I intend to continue with classes to improve and maybe look for professional opportunities in Brazil."

"Coming to a country where you do not know any of the language was a very daunting experience. I was nervous I would not be able to communicate and would have no chance of meeting some friends in Brazil. When I first found out that I would have a week of classes in Portuguese I really didn't think that it would be able to prepare me for the next two months of living in Brazil. However, that one week of schooling was then. I felt much more confident in my ability to communicate in Portuguese after that week and learned not only about the Brazillian language itself, but also many of the customs and traditions present within Brazil."

“Throughout my exchange, I met some amazing people that will always remain in my life. The relationships that you make are life long and all the lessons that you learn mold you into a better person. This challenged me in ways I could not have imagined because of the things I had to overcome. I not only became a lot more independent, but I now speak another language (and, with that, learned a whole new way of thinking) and have friends from all over the world!”
