Studying With an Exchange Student From France

I have been studying with a foreign exchange student from France. We have been emailing almost every day and it is very helpful because she only responds to me en francais.

Today she sent me this email, it was super motivational so I thought I'd share :)


Si tu as la chance d’étudier dans un autre pays, fais le. N’hésite pas! C’est une experience incroyable. En venant aux Etats- Unis j’ai appris une nouvelle culture, un autre mode de vie, j’ai rencontré des personnes incroyables (comme toi :) )…

Si un jour tu viens en France, dit le moi. Je serai ravie te t’accueillir et de te faire découvrir la France.

Je suis encore désolée de répondre seulement maintenant.

(which I could actually mostly read, but in english it translates to-)


If you have the chance to study in another country, do it. Do not hesitate! It’s an amazing experience. Coming to the United States I learned a new culture, another way of life, I met incredible people (like you :)) ...

If one day you come to France, tell me. I would be delighted to welcome you and make you discover France.

I'm still sorry to answer only now.

Small typos here : "...... dis-le moi. Je serais ravie de t’accueillir...


I had a French exchange student in February of last year. Last summer I met up with him in France! I hope you can get that same experience :)


That is so wonderful. I would love to study with an exchange student from a different country. They would be fascinated with England while I would love their country.
