Katherine, UIV, discusses the recent French exchange:
Bienvenue chez moi! These were some of the first words I spoke to my French exchange student, who, as it turned out, was remarkably well versed in English. In fact, she was far better at English than I was at French (but I think my fumbling efforts at her language were widely understood). Along with the other students taking part in the UIV Marseille Exchange program, I had been in contact with Lea for about a month before the French girls arrived over half term. At the weekend some of us took our exchanges ice skating, shopping at Camden Market, or to a musical. This leg was extremely good fun, and a great learning experience for all involved in the programme – I can’t wait to visit Marseille next April for the second leg of the journey!
