In Their Words

One of my most memorable experiences was studying abroad through LVC’s program in Montpellier, France, where I spent three months living with a host family, attending a French university, and traveling.

Being able to continue to study French was a major reason I chose LVC. With small classes and engaging professors, every class feels like a conversation between all the students and the professor. Everyone is supportive and pushes each other to be the best language learners we can be.
