Student Testimonial

Taryn La Fauci
James Cook University (Australia), M+M 2010

“For anyone thinking about doing an exchange program overseas I say GO FOR IT! My class was so amazing. This summer school gave me a chance to not only immerse myself in German culture but so many other cultures as well. It was like a big school camp but we all got to do what we wanted and we all got along.

 

One of the great things about the summer school was all the organized activities that we got a chance to participate in. The school did a wonderful job of organizing activities that were not only fun but also highly interesting and educational.”
