Besides improving my French, this program broadened my knowledge of French culture, attitude, government, amongst other things. It was more than just completing homework, it gave purpose for why we chose to study French.


A great experience, a chance to grow as a person and learn loads about yourself as a person. Culturally shocking, horrifying and difficult while at the same time being an experience that I am so incredibly grateful for and so happy to have taken part in.


The program has been extremely beneficial on an educational level (both in class and socially in the city and while travelling- and has been overall a good experience. I think it’s both beneficial for more outgoing people, like myself, to get to explore the world, and for people who may be more shy so they can be put out of their comfort level.


On top of experiencing the French culture, I’ve also been able to learn a lot about myself. It has been an amazing growing opportunity.

The Nice exchange was the best thing I’ve done for myself in terms of my personal growth and my improvement educationally. I was challenged and learned so much in ways I would not have been otherwise within a classroom!

Immerse yourself in France’s culture while eating baguette and chees and drinking cheap French wine on the French Riviera. Come see what France has to offer!


The exchange has helped me improve my French and become more independent. I have also had to learn how to adapt to a different culture and become more flexible. I have also made friends from all over the world.



It will change you as a person if you’re open to accept that change. Bring positivity and have fun.

The most eye-opening year of my life!



Participating in the Nice exchange has been the most rewarding experience of my life. I have grown on a personal level in so many ways and my eyes have been opened to how diverse and special our word is. Given the opportunity, I would do this exchange again in a heartbeat.

To be honest, the best way to describe the program is: “nine months in the South of France”. It’s exactly how it sounds.



My year in Nice has been one of the best years of my life and I’ve had the chance to visit so many new places and experience tons of new cultures.

Micheal Roy


Going on this exchange was the best decision I made so far! I have improved my French, especially orally, and have gained so much experience by living away from home. Nice really does become home!



A once in a lifetime experience that extremely benefitted my knowledge of the French language.



It has been a life-changing experience, a great way to improve your French and better understand other cultures.

This program has been absolutely incredible! Living my day-to-day life in French, all while experiencing the beautiful Côte d’Azur is something I will never forget and will never regret.

Sean Kennedy


My year in Nice has been one where I’ve had the opportunity to explore, grow and experience a world outside of my own (Toronto).



The Nice exchange has been one of the best decisions of my life. I have grown so much as an independent person, learned many priceless life lessons, met countless amazing people, travelled Europe and improved my French in ways I couldn’t have back home.



My year abroad in Nice has been one of the best experiences ever. Not only has it provided me with an opportunity to learn and improve my French, but it has also allowed me to meet so many incredible people and grow as an independent individual.
