I had an excellent experience on the ORA Summer Language Program! After not studying French for two years, I was nervous about how well I would fare in an intensive language course, but I found the classroom to be focused on oral and presentation activities that put everyone at ease to participate. The material was challenging enough that I found myself learning new vocabulary and grammar everyday without feeling like I had to hit the books to review every night. The animation allowed us to practice our French with real French people and get a handle on French culture more so than any classroom experience could have. Both the classroom and outside animation formed a nice, comprehensive learning environment for everyone, and it completely reignited my interest in and love of the French language and culture.
