What Our Students Are Saying

“The French Immersion weekend is a gem of an experience for active students of the language, as well as for members of the larger Franco-American community here in Maine, or those simply wanting to practice the beautiful language of French [..] The facilitators of the event are all such wonderful, warm people who create a beautiful opportunity to dive in and take one’s own pursuit of French to a new level.”     — Ashley Whittemore, UMA student and participant
