Alberta to Quebec
This summer I spent five weeks in Trois-Rivières and was fortunate enough to experience the best five weeks of my life. The people I met, the friends I made and the memories I now have are priceless. Not to mention how much my French improved, and I've been taking French courses for 12 years.
The best way to improve is by being immersed in a French environment. I would 100% recommend this. Words cannot describe my experience or the sadness I felt when it was over. If you are in the slightest bit considering this, GO FOR IT! I was a little hesitant at first, but I went, all alone, and it was too good. So please, for your sake, do this, you will no regret it, I guarantee!
