Yes, it was very helpful.
Would you recommend this program? :
Yes. The program is very well structured and offers a lot for students interested in learning French. It is made up of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Indiana students, so you are able to meet a lot of great new people from other schools as well.
There is so much you will learn only after being in the country and experiencing it yourself; but I would have to say, plan on spending a lot of money. Little things add up and transaction fees and exchange rates are killer.
Will this help you in your profession?:
I have been taking French for about 8 years now and it obviously helped me here because I'm fluent and have immersed myself in the language and culture. I think it's character-building to go abroad and have to be independent in a foreign situation.
Live it up! You will experience amazing things and changes within yourself and it's so important to slow down and live every moment, because experiences like this don't happen often.
